At The Well-Raising Godly Boys
If you are raising boys, what areas concern you most? If you don't have, or haven't raised boys, what is your concern for boys in today's culture? I am not a mother, but I feel I do have a mothers heart. I love kids of all ages, and pray for them all. I have five awesome nephews, and I love them all dearly. My prayer for boys in today's culture, is that they be their own person. Peer pressure is so devastating to so many lives. I wish that boys would realize that they are awesome just the way they are. God uniquely created them the way they are, there is no one else in the world like them. They have their own talents and abilities that God has blessed them with. Instead of seeking after the newest electronic gadget, or the newest fad that your friends are into, be someone who seeks after Gods heart. Be your own person, let God shine in you, and through you. Never be afraid to show your emotions, let the tears flow if you need to. There is no shame in tears, Jesus wept. Equip yourself with the word of God, bury it deep in your heart. He died for you, may you always be willing to live for Him.
