1/19 – CHECK OUT THE NEW AUDIO LESSONS POSTED ON THE RESOURCES PAGE!
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Parenting is no easy task. For this reason, the Bible has much to say about it not just in commands and proverbs. We can learn about parenting by the examples we see in the Bible. The sons of Eli were worthless, 1 Samuel 2:12. They robbed and slept with women at the temple. They were horrible, and Eli did rebuke them, 1 Samuel 2:22-25. But notice the weak rebuke. Too little, too late. Their character had been shaped long before. Parents, don’t wait to discipline your children until it is too late. They need to learn “no” from you as they grow, otherwise they will learn it the hard way later on. Apparently, Samuel’s sons were not much better, 1 Samuel 8:1-3. These are examples of what happens when parents do not discipline their children. And often they wonder what happened. Where did we go wrong? Children need boundaries and discipline. They need to be trained, Proverbs 22:6, Ephesians 6:4. If you are struggling as a parent, the Bible can help with solid principles to aid the process, so that in days to come, your children will be a joy to you, Psalm 127:4-5, Proverbs 17:6. And we can help in showing these principles to you.
If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me. One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18. If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me. Sincerely, Scott Long email@example.com
