|Correcting Children | Fred Pruitt, 2007||Parenting|
It takes wisdom from above to know when to correct.... One method or rule will not apply to every child, since they have different temperaments, different dispositions, and also much variation in intellectual comprehension.

Jesus was quick to give the credit to God. Although He was God Himself... He quickly and reflexively gave the credit for virtue to His heavenly Father. It is this set of heart and mind that avoids the pride of life and lives in humble reliance upon God.

It is all uphill to the top of the mountains. Also, for people to flow together in this manner, they must melt. There are a whole lot of things that can only work in the Bible pattern if the melting occurs.

|Foundation Truth, Number 18 (Summer 2007) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2007||Parenting|
Immediately I got the money, the Lord's voice again came to me saying: "Send most of the money to your family." Whenever the Lord speaks, there is a finality and so joyous a conviction that it cannot be easily mistaken.

|Foundation Truth, Number 19 (Winter 2008) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2008||Parenting|
The prophecies were intended for the comfort and edification of those who have paid the price of buying the truth. They cannot be properly understood in all the fullness of their blessing until this step is taken.

|Foundation Truth, Number 1 (Winter 2000) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2000||Parenting|
The Bible requires a pure heart—a failure on your part to get the Bible promise fulfilled in you will result in you missing heaven, for "blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God," and "without [holiness] no man shall see the Lord."

|Foundation Truth, Number 26 (Autumn 2010) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2010||Parenting|
The first step to walking in faith in God is to renounce your unbelief.... When this is done, when we have been afflicted to the extent that we mourn and weep... then we will be inspired to believe the promises of God.... We will then count Him faithful who promised.

|Foundation Truth, Number 2 (Spring/Summer 2000) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2000||Parenting|
The unity that Paul and Apollos had was not a negotiated one.... The essence of that unity came from each being in unity with God. This produced a oneness in Him that did not depend on careful posturing and positioning with each other.

|Foundation Truth, Number 3 (Autumn 2000) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2000||Parenting|
"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God."... Someone has stated that the fool says this in his heart without the full consent of his mind, for if it be difficult to prove by human reasoning that there is a God, it is utterly impossible to prove that there is not.

|Foundation Truth, Number 6 (Spring 2002) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2002||Parenting|
Acknowledgment of truth is the first and vital step to getting help. This truth runs contrary to the philosophy of influence... the skill of easing people into a better condition. The way of the cross is the way of acknowledgment—it is a stark confrontation.

|Parent and Child | Jacob W. Byers||Parenting|
Dear parents, we hold the highest and most God-honored position in this world, and to a large extent hold in our hands the destiny of our own children.... Oh, that God may waken us to our important duties and opportunities!... We must grasp them now.

|Successful Child Training | Charles E. Orr, 1904||Parenting|
Here he lies an infant in your arms. He is at your mercy.... You can lead him in the paths of virtue to a generous Christian manhood, or you can neglect him and allow him to go to shame and ruin. Let this thought be impressed deeply upon your consciousness.
