You need to be sure and listen to your mom and dad. They’ll be able to help you through a lot of hard things in life. You know why they can help? Because they went through a lot of the same things. And they listened to their moms and dads…your grandparents. And your grandparents listened to their moms and dads. But do you wanna know where they all got their best help? Keep reading…
Your best place to find help is the Bible. It’s God’s word. In fact, when you read it out loud, you can hear Him talking to you. The Bible is filled with stories of people who went through hard things in life…just like you. Many times they didn’t understand why bad things were happening. And the people who got through the best were the ones who trusted God and His brain power.
There’s a place in the Bible where it says listening to your parents is like wearing a beautiful crown and necklace. You know what that means, don’t you? It means you’d be walking around feeling like a king or queen. But why is that? Because when you listen to your mom and dad instead of some dorky, little voice in your head, you can skip some of the bad things in life.
I know it’s not always easy to obey your parents. And I want you to know I didn’t always do that either. But the more you do, the better your life will work. Remember, they’ve lived in the world a lot longer than you. And they’ve seen a lot more things than you. And most importantly…they love you, and they don’t want to see you hurt. So, sometimes when they tell you to do something or not do something, it’s just to save you from being hurt. That makes sense…doesn’t it?
Here’s the most important reason of all to listen to your mom and dad…because God says so. And even if you don’t think you can always trust even your parents…you can always trust God. He never tells you to do something or not do something just to be mean. It’s always because He loves you and wants you to have the best life possible. And here’s a rhyme to help you remember…
Listen to your mom and dad,
It’s something good to do.
And listen to the words of God.
He wrote them just for you.
