I love how God’s Word, no matter who He was speaking to at the time, can be applied to our lives today. I mean, Pslam 25, written by David, a man of war living centuries (millenniums) before I was born, writes a prayer that so fits me for today it is amazing. Grab your Bible. Read the Psalm.
“Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.”
God is able to teach us as moms and dads how to do this great work. He will do it. Wait on Him. Study and read it through. Seek His wisdom, not the world’s! If He can save you from the pit of hell, He can teach you to do this job! Read on…verse 7 brings me great joy.

“Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; according to your mercy remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord.”
Isn’t that a comfort? Our mothers would tell us, “I hope little johnny gives you as much trouble as you gave me!” and we tremble. Oh no. Please God no. I am doing everything possible to keep little Johnny from making the same mistakes I did. Well this Psalm should bring comfort to heart of every previously wayward teenager who now finds themselves parenting and in complete fear of their mother’s curse!
God remembers you with mercy, He will teach you and lead you in parenting. Search His Word, be comforted, and fear no more. Instead, speak words of faith over your children and memorize this Psalm if necessary. NO MATTER your checkered past as a young one, or even recently. Rely on His Word and his mercy. Thank you Jesus for your everlasting lovingkindness.
