Hello wonderful people!
I know I am probably very late with this post but I guess there's nothing late with what my eyes saw... A colleague just showed me the video of a 10 year old girl and a 4 or 5 year old boy in a sex act.
The first time I read it was on Linda's blog, I read the story and the comments but did not see the video. I again read it on Myne's and a few other blogs, but couldn't contribute much. The video scared my very existence. And through the span of the video, I just kept saying... No! shouting... "OMG! What is this?!!!" I couldn't even sleep that night. If you are a parent especially a mother, you will understand and have the same feelings as I did, and probably more, when you watch the movie and see what I am talking about.
What I did on the evening of the day I watched the video was to hold my son and pray for him. I prayed throughout the night, crying amidst the prayers.
What am I trying to say? We cannot be careful enough... We are not always there with our kids. They go to school and meet all sort of characters from different background and homes and so for that matter, we (their parents) must consistently pray and plead the blood of Jesus on their behalf always.
We parents, have to also be careful with the kind of things our wards watch on television because the girl in question was exhibiting some acts and patterns she must have watched. May I submit to you also that, we need to pray for them and with them always as this will instill the fear and wisdom of God in them. We should not just teach them to pray, we must also impact the life of God in them, and release them into a destiny that has God in the centre of it.
I refer you to what the Bible says in Proverbs 22:6, the import of which is that we must train up our children in the way that they should go so that when they grow up, they will not depart from it. A properly trained child will fear God and live a wise and righteous life as an adult. We must dedicate ourselves not just to providing good food, shelter and clothing for our children, we must also set them in the path of God's righteousness, through fervent prayerful impartation and good training. May the good Lord continue to protect and keep us safe now and always... Amen!
Peace... I'm out!
