Protecting Your Child in a Sexualized Culture
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5
Christian young people have asked me what specific things they can do to stay pure in a culture such as ours where ever. Here are 3:
- First, watch the crowd they hang out with. Choose their friends wisely (see Proverbs 13:20).
- Second, guard what they put into their minds from books, movies, and music (see Psalm 101:3a, Proverbs 6:27).
- Lastly, control their thought life (see Proverbs 23:7a, Philippians 4:8). The thought is the father of the deed. Someone has well said, "We cannot keep the birds from flying over our heads, but we can keep them from making a nest in our hair."
There’s more. Share these with your child:
Walk with God today as you never have before.
Make a covenant with your eyes (Job 31:1).
Set a guard over your lips (Psalm 141:3).
Take charge of your thought life.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8).
