Cultivating Fidelity Starts Young

Today is my last day of study for 2013 academic year in Far Eastern Bible College.  In the last lesson, the lecturer showed us this movie to conclude our studies on Biblical Counselling.

I was moved by the example set up by the father in the movie, who single-handedly brought up his only daughter, that I thought I should share this with all Christian parents here.

As Ashley Madison (AM), a controversial online extramarital dating website, announced its intention to launch in Singapore next year last week, it has since provoked the ire of many.  There are protests and petitions via the social media urging the local authorities to block the access to this website.  We are glad that the Minister for Social & Family Development is also against this set up (read here).

Certainly, blocking AM from Singapore will not prevent a single act of infidelity from occurring.  There are abundant of temptations around us & one could easily fall into them if he/she is not strong.  But, as mentioned in James 4:7, we should resist them.  As citizens of Singapore, we should do our part to protect our families from breaking.

As parents, all the more we should teach our children good values since young.  We should teach our children to keep themselves pure & to abstain from fornication (1 Thessalonians 4:3).  With this well-rooted in our children, when our children become parents, the same right value is likely to be imparted to our grandchildren as well (we pray).

While it is important to block out all possible means of temptations to protect our families, it is far more important to cultivate & impart the value of fidelity to our children since young.  Train up a child in the way he should go: & when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6 KJV).  When they are taught to walk the godly way, the straight & narrow way, they are less likely to stray.

This Christian movie is certainly worth watching.  The full 1-hour film can be viewed via this link :  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki4dCMSPFLs

Protect our families.  Protect our children.
