In this day and age it is getting harder and harder to be a positive light in such a seemingly dark world. Holding on to Biblical principles are also getting harder and harder to place inside our children’s hearts thanks to media and other outside sources. Marriage has become a joke. Families are being broken for the lack of interest partners have to uphold their end on what being married in the sight of God means. Loyalty in a marriage seems to be something that is unheard of. I can not tell you how many times I have been told of a marriage breaking up because they just forgot that marriage means for better and for worse. They forgot that when you marry someone it means you are done with searching for someone else. Marriage is a UNION that needs to be kept at all cost.
Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Hebrews 13:4-7
Then there are other relationships that don’t even make it to marriage but go through all the other steps. I remember in my own personal family that living with someone other that your husband was strongly discouraged. Fornication was also strongly frowned upon. Yet now it seems that no longer do you need to get married to “play house” and it is ok. We wonder why this problem continues to grow. It is because we act like it is ok.
Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18
Now I am not saying to quickly turn your back on those who have made those choices however I am saying there is no need to throw a parade. Why do we get excited about others going down a dark path? Why do we not set out to try and talk to those people? A lot of times it is because we are just going along with the crowd.The problem with this is what kind of message is this showing our children. We are teaching them to ignore sin. Pretend it isn’t there. We are also teaching them to go with the crowd not against the crowd. Otherwise someone might get offended. However as Christians aren’t we suppose to do just that. When we look at the life of Jesus, we see that He stepped on many toes. He was quick to show love to those who need it. Tell them the ways to change their lives and then reach out to help them. He also called out sins and refused to go with the crowd.
We have a problem. We as Christians have grown so comfortable in going with the grain that we are making it harder on ourselves to raise children who will someday stand up for what is Biblically correct. After all why would they? We are to set the example for our children. It is time we start doing just that. Quit caring what the world will think and instead worry about what the Father thinks. Isn’t that how we are suppose to be. Are we becoming part of the problem with the world or are we standing up and being part of the solutions?
