PRAYING PARENTS RAISE PRAYING CHILDREN, No. 3.

URSaltThe truth is that if parents do not educate their children about prayer and God’s Word, they have failed to educate them in the things that matter most to God.

Our Heavenly Father desires His children to be in all the occupations of life, whether it be the arts, academia (doctors, lawyers, teachers, professors, science, engineering), the military (all phases), or manual work (building mechanics, and general labor.) I believe God also wants His children to be involved in the political arena and the media.

God wants His influence (we are the salt and light) to impact every area of human involvement. Many occupations of life require a high degree of education. However, this does not mean that a greater emphasis should be put on secular education in place of spiritual education. We can only be the salt and light and a godly influence on our fellow man if we are daily prayed up and have strong daily doses of God’s Word.

God wants His kingdom, like leaven, to infiltrate every area of our lives, both in our homes and in our places of work. Matthew 13:33 says: “The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the WHOLE WAS LEAVENED.”

As fully surrendered Christians, what’s the point of being successful in our natural calling in life if we are not successful in our spiritual calling?

Jesus aid in Matthew 6:33: “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” This does not mean we should put His kingdom first only on the day we first decided to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord, but every day following.

Some people thing that this Scripture only applies to the one day a week, e.g. Sunday. There could be nothing further from the truth.

Be encouraged.
