Proverbs Challenge Day 19

20 Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise.

 

Don’t you wish that you could discipline your adult children? I know I do.  Sometimes even though we have instructed our children well, they stray.  But God promises that if we instruct out children well, they will return.  We learn that with the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32)

When our children stray, as a parent, we wonder if we went wrong, what we could of done better.  We disciplined them, made them graduate high school, helped them go to college, but most of all we took them to church.

The hardest thing to accept is that we can’t control anyone especially not our children, we can nurture them, guide them, but we can’t make them behave the way we want them to behave. We can’t even make them believe in Jesus.

There is one thing we can do,

PRAY.  God answers the prayers of the righteous (James 5:16.)
