Child Guidance: Other Basic Lessons

To Parents, Teachers, and Problem-Solvers:

You have probably noticed that the morals of the children growing up in our midst have been lacking. Nowadays, many children are promiscuous, rude, violent, and confused. “The fearful state of the youth of this age constitutes one of the strongest signs that we are living in the last days…” {Child Guidance, pg.176}

In 2 Timothy 3:1 it says, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves…disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy…” Nevertheless, “As God called forth the earth in its beauty out of chaos, so we can bring order and beauty out of confusion” {Ed 215}. We can be problem solvers!

There must be more study given to the problem of how to deal with the youth, more earnest prayer for the wisdom that is needed in dealing with minds” {GW 208}. Many of the solutions for selfish, disobedient, unthankful, unholy, and godless children are found in the book Child Guidance. Heavenly principles, that echo and magnify the Scriptures, are revealed within its pages. Whether we are a parent or not, the knowledge gained can be used to guide every child of God –young, old, married, or single– to the kingdom of Heaven.

In fact, the study of Child Guidance “…will be of little benefit, unless the ideas gained can be carried out in practical life” {CG 32}. “He designed that the principles revealed through His people should be the means of restoring the moral image of God in man.” {COL 286}

For such a time as this, it is not enough to just read through this book. It is high time that we study and do. This study guide is designed to help us dig deeper, and use the solutions that God has for the problems that arise when training children. “Serious troubles are soon to be seen upon the earth, and children should be trained in such a way as to be able to meet them.” {CG 122}

We encourage everyone to use these lessons as an aid, which will assist you in your study of the inspired book Child Guidance.

    Hi, MOL Family! Brother K. here, and thank you for the youth instruction of our children; who are the future! We have as you reminds us, of a great work in a little time to do it in. I’m not ready or my family, yet with the help of the holy spirit we can prepare our children as did the Waldenses.

    Until our next communication!
    :) God bless you all!

      Praise the Lord Brother, thank you kindly for sharing. By God’s grace, we shall be praying for you and your family.

    Good evening MOL Family, the youth is a strong force to be reckoned with. I remember when I was much younger how I felt that I can overcome anything. The youth of today has too many distractions. It is up to the parents to cut off every evil tendency that can gain the mastery. Out of the cities, and into the country.

    Until the next lesson, brother
    :) Enjoy

    • MOL Services

      Amen, may God help us to be His faithful ambassadors.

    Hi MOL Family, Brother K., We are in serious trouble! Some where in the spirit of prophecy, Satan has successfully spread idolatry throughout all the world accept in Palestine. This is important to the people of God, our children in the city are under constant attack. I live in the city and making plans to get out, at whatever cost it may! This Revolution that is in our nation, is seeking to sweep away all law, not just human, divine law too! It has the people in a vice grip. The people instead of looking to God to hold on too, they have bought into the idea of secular humanism. They will solve all there own problems ourselves, with God helping a little here and there. In this is why the children are in trouble, cause the parents are lost!

    Until our next communication
    :) Enjoy, these remaining moments of daylight

      Hello Brother! Thank you for sharing. Praying the Lord will make a way of escape for you out of the city, and continue to keep you by His keeping power.

  4. Bro. K

    Thank you, MOL Family for more of God’s instruction on how to reach our children! Whether young or old, we are responsible for what we pass on as a legacy to our children.
    Thank you for todays lesson.

    Hi, MOL Family!
    Just to follow up on the last reply I have given. We are dealing with a lost generation who has received the sins of the fathers. Its going to take Jesus through the administration of the Holy Spirit to work against this rising tide of evil that has swept the world in Babylonian captivity!

    Until next lesson, I will continue to be a diligent student of prophecy!
    :) Enjoy this day the Lord has made!

      Praise the Lord Brother! Thank you kindly for your participation!

    Hi, MOL Family,
    We need
    Not for the children! For the adults who is letting there children run there homes. The prophet EGWhite in the book Great Controversy, the chapter on the Waldenses and Albedenses, gives excellent instruction on how we are to train our children even unto death! Thank you pastor Davis for the sermon I heard you delivering this message. Until we get back to Gods principals in our society we have no hope of restoring the home.

    :) Until next time, enjoy this day the lord has made!
