TODAY IS GIVE AND TAKE WEDNESDAY
I'll be referencing this expression to those that GIVE their children harm, and in the same turn TAKE away their love and trust. I beg of those that hurt children to please GIVE love instead of taking love away. In the Messiah Jesus Christ Name! Since I am overly passionate about the innocence of children, I decided to give parents a few tips on what I believe occur when they administer GIVE AND TAKE.
Whether you like it or not your small children see you as their God. Let’s digest this for a moment. I’m sure the Pharisees and Sadducees of today are screeching in anger about what I just said. I don’t care! From my own life experiences, and many life observations I find one thing to be true about children. Children trust you even after you hurt them. Mm-mm, reminds us of what? The epitome of authentic love, for no matter how much you take from this love it keeps giving and giving. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8). These verses are parallel to how children demonstrate this very love.
For example, when a parent harm (physical, mentally, verbally) their children, and soon after say “I’m” sorry that child will forgive without even thinking about the hurt that was caused. Why? Children see you as their God who has their best interest at hand. Also they see you as their God whom harms to protect. I believe the way that you treat you children is the manner in which they will accept or reject God in life. If you derail, abuse, neglect, and destroy you teach children to hate, disrespect, castoff, and condemn the very God they are supposed to love
Some may inquire “What gives me the right to write about this?” First thing first, I was a teenage mom, matter of fact I had all of my children before the age of twenty-five. I’ve witness a lot, and experienced a lot of parents that have berated their children in my presence. I’ve advocated for those children in the very presence of their parents. I’ve been the mediator ump teen times for children with their parents. I’ve stuck my nose where it belongs when parent and children relationships go turbulent. Besides I haven’t been the perfect parent (they don't exist). Nonetheless being a mom does make me an experienced expert in parenting.
In all sincerity, I’ve always been overly passionate about how parents treat their children as well as how children treat their parents. I solemnly believe that if we respect our children they will in turn respect us. Be reminded, children are not to be harmed into respecting their parents. This is foolishness! Surely if parents exhibit God, structure, and discipline they will not harm their children.
My friends, we are no longer under the law of whipping our children. (Proverbs 13:24). This scripture has been ignorantly or foolishly misused in order to permit abuse on children. I mean really whipping a child with a belt across their body, berating a child when they have disobeyed, slapping a child across the face, punching a child, kicking a child, hitting a child with an object, and screaming/yelling fear all in the name of "Spare the rod spoil the child". In no way shape or form is this the discipline of God, this is servitude with cruelty.
Did you know that when you berate or beat your children you’re implementing a hierarchy system of GIVE AND TAKE. There are many ways in which parents can discipline their children, and hurting them is not in the equation! (Hebrews 12:7-11). These verses are informative to how God imposes discipline upon us when we disobey His instructions. As well as how we should likewise discipline our children. I mean really think about it; God has never ever come down from his throne and GIVE AND TAKE (physical harm while taking away our love ) just so we can obey Him. He corrects us with his rod, which is the word of God.
The point is discipline should always be activated with love first. Now on the other hand, if your one of those parents that will continue to GIVE AND TAKE unto your children, it should be speedy (a quick swat on the hand) and never drawn out or memorable.
Hold up wait a minute! In no way am I saying that our children will never be disrespectful (we live in a fallen evil world that subjects our children to sometimes mimic those behaviors). The word of God is very clear on the forces that are behind all evils; therefore when children are being unruly by all means check the force first. I’m sure you’ll find an evil spirit manipulating their thoughts all in order to get “you” to display an emotional response of harm by all means. We are in a spiritual fight; therefore fighting a spiritual fight with a physical fight is insanity to say the least.
Please, I beg of all parents that apply GIVE AND TAKE to their children to take today (right now,) and seek God to reasons why your response to your children’s behavior does more harm than good. For the many that will not seek God, by all means reach out for some kind of counseling. There are many of programs (some free) out there for parents that are ignorantly or foolishly being employed to destroy Gods children. Surely the day will come and you personally or someone directly will experience the repercussion of your GIVE AND TAKE.
