Look up Proverbs 3:13 in your bible.
Pray about Proverbs 3:13 and ask God what he is saying to you through the scripture.
Read the following: Do you understand why your friends or relatives act the way they do? Maybe your mom and dad would like you to always clean your room because their parent always asked them to have their room clean. Maybe your friends aren't allowed to watch a certain t.v. show because their parents don't allow it. You see, we all act certain ways because of the influences on our lives. I'm sure you are exactly the same way.
We should seek to understand those that we love. We should seek to learn as much about them as possible so that we can love them even more.
Your Challenge: Ask your mom or dad if they would be willing to sit down with you today and discuss the following questions with them.
- What is one thing that you ask me to do because you did it when you were growing up?
- Can you explain to me why there are certain movies, t.v. shows, songs or video games that you don't want me to listen to, watch or play?
- What is one thing I could do a better job at?
