While I was in my prayer closet this morning listening to the praise music, the bible verse Psalm 98:4 came to mind.
“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.”
You and I are both old enough to know there are certain songs that when we hear them our fingers start snapping, toes start tapping, and our hips begin to sway to the beat. Usually by the time our mouth catches up with our body, there is a big smile and song bursts from it. Did you ever think that the songs your children are hearing today are being stored in their memory banks?
So if the music being played in your home or in your car with your kids listening, has vulgar language, violence, and disrespect in the lyrics; where do you think your kids are learning these actions to emulate?
My grandfather once told my father, after my brother hurled a curse word at him, “He had to hear it to know it.”
Your actions and words are what your kids mimic! Yes they will pick up some things from school. Very little, if it is not spoken or done at home.
You are their front line of defense in how they will face the world one day. Be mindful and build them up with positivity! Play praise music.
I love Listener Kids for the little ones. http://www.listernerkids.com. I am a fan!
And you can go to YouTube to find more praise music for all ages, even for moms and dads.
I will end with the video from Listener Kids called, “This Little Light of Mine.”
God Bless You!
God Bless America!
