(Proverbs 30:17 KJV) The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.
I don’t think it is a coincidence how often that attitude of children towards their parents is mentioned in Proverbs. Children are to show respect toward their parents, period. It doesn’t say, “If they deserve it.” It says, “Do it!” To my knowledge the reverse is not true. Parents are supposed to train and discipline. They are also told not to provoke their children. Parenting is a hard and narrow road to walk. Being a child may be hard but it is pretty obvious.
We need to be reminded that the approach to childhood that is taught in your typical university and public school is not in agreement with the Bible. In fact, it is directly opposed. Children are not fountains of wisdom. They do not deserve respect. They are not to be obeyed.
So? I hate to rain on your parade but you are watching generation after generation being destroyed as the church compromises and refuses the wisdom of God. Don’t be a part of it.
