Topic: THE HOME & THE SOCIETY
Text: Proverbs 22:6 KJV
6- Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
The society in this context is the environment around the home, one major relationship between the home and the society is influence.
Influence is the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behaviour of someone or something. The society can influence the home and the home can influence the society.
Societal influence can either be positive or negative, but really the proportion of negative societal influence is higher than the positive. The society which includes our physical environment, friends, neighbours and even other members of our family at large are
part of our lives, and our disposition toward them affect our lives. It is therefore important to guide and protect our children from bad or negative societal influence because such could change their perspective about life for evil.
You need to understand that societal influence especially the negative ones come with a lot of pressure and does not give its victim enough time to properly think before taking decision, therefore, you need to carefully, prayerfully and consciously instill quality and right moral values in your children for them to be able to withstand the pressure of the society. A lot of youths today have been badly oriented and have grown up with such a habit hence it becomes difficult to mend them.
Beloved, from our text above, the primary and basic training of your children is from you, all other ones are secondary. In simple term, it means you lay the foundation (which is the most important), by you (the parents), the children themselves and others (society)
build on that foundation. So beloved it is better to train a child than to repair men, let’s catch them young for Jesus Christ, let’s bring them up in the way of the Lord, because these little ones are the leaders of tomorrow and the hope for a better society. God bless you
* Father, help me train my children in the way of the Lord
* Father, the society will not destroy my home
