Like vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, so is the lazy one to those who send him.

He who loves pleasure will become a poor man; He who loves wine and oil will not become rich.

You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore, whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

Making Parenting Simple


Psalm 119:9


How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word.


Deuteronomy 4:2


Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you.



1. Pick up your responsibility with both hands.


Morality is your responsibility


Deuteronomy 11:18-19


“You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up.



2. Choose your King.


Morality comes from your King


1 Timothy 6:15-16


which He will bring about at the proper time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see.



3. Get ready to grow.


Proverbs 20:7


A righteous man who walks in his integrity— How blessed are his sons after him.
