Every time I put on cartoon stations, I realize that the world has an agenda for our children. Genies, charms, demons, spirits and witches are the order of the day. Seemingly innocent cartoon characters are looking to other spirits for assistance in every day tasks. My spirit is usually so disturbed; what happened to a cartoon being just that. Nowadays, I even find Tom & Jerry violent 🙂 when your trying to teach a toddler that hitting is not good, you have a ‘violence’ radar that goes on.
The Holy Spirit is real. He longs to walk with us and have a relationship with our children. For this to happen we need to be intentional about bringing them to spaces where they hear the word of God and experience His power.
If I don’t teach Ksena to love Jesus the world will teach her not to. It may not tell her not to love Him, instead it will show her other things to love instead. It’s so exciting that she can now verbally recall things from memory, she’s been telling us things that happened months ago. She is ripe for memory verses. I’ll put a list of the verses we are starting with and I can share them in a few days.
A few days ago,we taught her to say God bless you, she randomly walks up to us and says “Mummy/Daddy God bless you”. Our words have power, we are teaching her to bless and not curse.
Parenting is a full time job. Training up a child is a lot of work, but we have a helper who was present when the child was being knit in the womb. We should let Him guide us and lead us.
I’d love to hear how you are teaching your children about Jesus.
There are only so many nursery rhymes you can listen to without having them as a soundtrack in your dreams :). If you could please list some (clean) cartoons that we can check out in the next couple of months, I’d be so grateful.
