Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it – Proverbs 22:6.
Children are a gift from God even if they are received without being married. Many women in the church have been scorn because they have children out of wedlock which is wrong.. The church shouldn’t condone them but minister to them through love and kindness.When a woman decides to keep her child although she isn’t married; God isn’t pleased with the way she conceived the child but He would rather for her to keep her child than to kill her child through abortion. Many have taken the way of abortion because they are afraid they will not be able to provide for the child or they are selfish and don’t want to keep the child in order for them to continue to enjoy their life without being reasonable for a child. It’s 90% more women that have children out of wedlock than those that are married. These mothers should be treated and loved just like the women that are married. The house of God should be a safe haven for them to be ministered and nurtured whether they are believers or nonbelievers. Those that choose to be to minister to have a better chance of raising children through the principals of God that will lead their children to be successful in both worlds (I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live – Deuteronomy 30:19b). When a child is trained in the principals of God the world will not be able to influence them to go against the principals of God which will be a blessing to them.
As an adult were responsible for teaching our children and protecting our children. Many children have been molested by their mother’s boyfriend or older siblings or relatives because the mother was a nonbeliever and couldn’t hear the Spirit of the Lord warned them. Nothing comes upon a believer that has a prayerful life that is connected with God. Because of her relationship with God, nothing come by surprise. A mother may have children out of wedlock but because she has given her life to God after the child’s birth her relationship with God, she will not have a live in boyfriend or male friend with sexual benefits. She’s sensitive to the voice of God, the leading of God. She will teach her child to honor God and to honor themselves. She’s not passive by allowing her child to do or say whatever they want to because this is what secular books are teaching. A mother does not need to be taught how to be a mother, God has already created that in them whether they are a believer or nonbeliever.
She knows the whereabouts of her child, they don’t sleep over a friends house. If they do they are good friends of the parents. And if she gets a warning in her spirit no matter how close of a friend she is to the child’s parent; her child will not be sleeping over. She doesn’t dress provocative neither will she allow her child. She will teach her son to wear a belt and not allow his pants to be hanging under his waist sagging to the point his underwear is observed. Sadly to say this is not going on in every culture only in a few minority groups. In other minority, whether they are believers or non-believers their children are taught how to dress appropriately.
The world is not going to get any better according to the Word of God. It’s going to get worse, and parent need to have a relationship with God to keep God’s covering over their children. Children are our future if the coming of the Lord is delayed. They need to be taught the principals of God then they would know how to rule the world ( Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach [shame or disgrace] to any people – Proverbs 14:34).
