Fix These Words

“Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that the LORD [gives you].” (Deuteronomy 11:17–21, NIV 1984).

My Musings – “We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.” ― Franklin D. Roosevelt. We cannot ensure the future for our children and grandchildren, but we can prepare them for whatever comes. We cannot stop misfortune, or heartache, or disappointment. But we can blaze a trail that leads to a “peace that surpasses all understanding,” no matter what the future throws at them.

My Advice – The “prescription” was written many years ago. But it does no good if it is not filled or we do not follow the instructions. What loving parent would not get the prescription filled? Regrettably, many have neglected the cure and we are left with so many troubled youths growing up walking down the wrong road.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
