Today I stopped at the grocery store to grab a couple things for supper and proceeded to the quick check-out you know the one 12 items or less. In front of me was a young woman with two children a boy and a girl, the girl was around 4 and the boy had to be at least six.
The young boy was playing with his jet fighter toy and using some bag ties he picked up in produce to modify it. The young girl was reading a free grocery store magazine full of advertising, you know the kind full of movies and such. she comes across some ads for movies and proceeds to blaspheme God with the traditional OMG.
Her mother looks at her and scolds her but not in a mean way, it was very loving with a you should know better than that tone in her voice as she says her name out loud. The young girl say's sorry Mom I meant to say Oh my gosh.
It made my heart glad to have witnessed that and it hit me that blasphemy has become a common old hat everyday occurrence that children pick up on easily as part of speech. If we are parents and we follow the biblical proverb found in Proverbs 22:6 that say's;
Train a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Then we are surely doing what we should by training our children the way they should go and to look at their own wrongdoings and to be aware of what they say and how they say it.
To live a conscious life bereft of excuses.
The Lord bless and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
