THE TURNING OF THE HEARTS

Malachi 45-6 says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: and he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."

This passage of Scripture reveals God's heart for the revival of parenting. This revival has been manifesting itself in a number of ways. I will list, although not in order of importance, what I have observed to be the main areas so far.

1. The homeschooling movement. Thousands of parents have taken their children out of the public education to give them a godly education at home. Others are being educated in private Christians schools. More and more, the state schools are introducing a humanistic and liberal agenda which is the opposite of God's Word and they are becoming hotbeds for drugs and sex. God-fearing parents cannot assimilate.

2. Women are being challenged to leave their careers and make motherhood and homemaking their highest priority.

3. Fathers and mothers are being challenged by God's Word to stop limiting their family size and trust God for the children He wants to give them.

4. The importance of Family Devotions where God's Word is shared with the family morning and evening. Family prayers are offered up to God along with the singing of hymns and spiritual songs.

I will elaborate on each of these points in following posts.

Be encouraged. Colin
