Parental approval

A child wants his parent’s approval. Somewhere in youth the desire for their praise may wane but with some children it returns as they mature. That act upon which Dad/Mom frown some children won’t do or if they do, they’ll hide it. That deed about which the parent is silent (or even condones) may get done openly. Parents – this is a huge responsibility. You should not oppose “x” merely because your parents or some minister did (if you’ve done this, apologize). But if “x” is condemned in God’s Word keep your stand. Do it with sweetness but never forsake God’s clear teachings, even if children succumb to this permissive age.
