Scriptures On Parents And Children
It is so heartbreaking to see children treating their parents, so awfully. Parents just as children are to cherish each other, because their lives are not promised to be alive forever.
So, many children think just because they had a rough childhood means that when they are grown they can just treat their parents like they want to. They mentally and verbally abuse them, they call them names, scream at them, holler at them, tell them off, tell them things like "I wish you wasn't my parents," or maybe something like "I can't stand you" or maybe "you are not worth it to me", or when they are hungry and refuse to feed them, or take them where they need to go, like doctors appointments, to get their meds, etc. seriously.
Parents, bring their children up try to bring them up like God would want them to, it's not their fault the children choose to go about their way in life, and the choices they make... so STOP and watch and listen. You were given parents, that is a blessing and us parents were given children which is a blessing, STOP blaming the parents for the bad choices you make because your life is a living hell.
Your parents, did their job and now it's time for the children which are grown to do theirs, and the children which do NOT FOLLOW what GOD says, and how they should treat their parents instead of threatening them etc. your life is numbered, like the hairs on your head!
One thing is children treat their parents the way they do, is because they think they treated them wrong while growing up so they feel as if it's only right to treat them bad when they grow up. Some children use their parents, if they have to stay with them and take them for all they have, this is a SIN, we are not to take a dime from our parents if we need to help take care of them. GOD, isn't pleased at all with this action!
Well, the children must have been worth it to the parents, because they took care of you made sure you ate, had clothes and a roof on your backs. And, when our parents grow old or have disabilities... listen up : "IT'S OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO TAKE CARE OF OUR PARENTS..."
I have listed some very helpful "Scriptures" to help anyone who thinks that treating their parents like trash on the streets, you are in "T-R-O-U-B-L-E" stop right now, because "The Lord HAS your NUMBER!"
