MIRACLE PEOPLE RESCUE

 

 Burat, 10, is now recovering at home after being found in a freezing-cold sewer in western Russia A woman miraculously saved a child from being frozen to death after she accidentally she fell down a manhole and found him. Gulia Yarullina, 31, was part of a 120-strong volunteer group searching for a missing 10-year-old boy in Tatarstan, western Russia. Burat, 10, is now recovering at home after being found in a freezing-cold sewer in western Russia. While looking for the youngster she was given the fright of her life when he fell through an open sewage well which was covered by snow. But to Gulia’s astonishment, she found the lost lad, named Burat, asleep in the sewer. Speaking with NTV, she said: “My first thought was that the boy was dead. He was lying  there as if he had died.“I started screaming because I was scared. He woke up and started screaming too. Gulia Yarullina, who injured her back during the fall, immediately called for help when she found the ladA volunteer looking for the boy also fell down the manhole and accidentally discovered Burat who had fallen asleep in the dark and freezing cold sewer. Gulia Yarullina, who injured her back during the fall, immediately called for help when she found the lad. The brave schoolboy has since been reunited with his family

The brave schoolboy has since been reunited with his family Authorities said the boy would have frozen to death within an hour if he had not been found by Gulia

Authorities said the boy would have frozen to death within an hour if he had not been found by Gulia. “I told him: ‘Do not be afraid, we were looking for you and we have finally found you.’ He was so happy he started jumping.” And the authorities said later that if the volunteer had not tumbled through manhole the boy would have died an hour later. Gulia, who injured her back during the fall phoned for help once she discovered Burat who was rushed to hospital suffering from severe hypothermia. It is amazing how God works miracles to rescue people in the most wonderful way. At times people feel completely lost, hopeless, unable to figure a way out on their own but God intervened and rescues them. A volunteer looking for the boy also fell down the manhole and accidentally discovered Burat who had fallen asleep in the dark and freezing cold sewerOther cases involve another woman who fell into water spring and another 6 feet down captured by CCTV. A 67-year-old woman was seriously injured after falling into an open cellar door while she was walking and checking her cellphone at the same time, police said. The incident, which occurred Thursday in Plainfield, N.J., was captured on surveillance video by a local window company. In the video, the woman can be seen walking on a sidewalk toward open basement-access doors. She holds a purse in her right hand and a cellphone in her left; just before she arrives at the hole, she glances toward her phone.hqdefault

A moment later, she stumbles over one of the open doors and falls headfirst into the cellar. Two alarmed bystanders cover their mouths in horror. Plainfield police said in a statement that the woman tumbled about six feet down. Firefighters extricated the woman from the hole, and she was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, police said. The basement-access doors had been open at the time because of repairs to gas lines in the area, police added. Similarly, during journey of life, there are bumps, ditches, potholes and unseen dangers on the way. These can cause people to trip accidentally or carelessly if not alert and watching. Unfortunately some are never rescued due to depth of the hole like the man who fell into crater sink hole in his bedroom in America. But another boy was rescued in another sewer this is quite common all over the world. facebook sign

For example, the snow covered road made it impossible to see the pothole so the woman fell into it also. However, it is a miracle because the steps of the righteous are ordered by the LORD God. The woman could have missed that pot hole and that boy would have bed missed his God sent opportunity for rescue. Yet God in His Grace and Mercy at the right time sent help. At times in life, one may feel as if abandoned to the muck and sewers of misfortunes. One tragedy or another trauma after the other until one wonders if even God cares anymore about you. Others due to loss of homes and harsh economic measures are literally living in sewers, rubbish damps and cemetaries all over the world.

Living a life that is shocking to others beyond measure and yet there is no alternative. No matter the situation in life, there is eternal hope beyond life’s circumstances beyond human control. Jesus said the good Shepherd goes after the one lost sheep until it is found and brought safely home. It is good to know God deeply cares and uses people and all the available resources to rescue people from the potholes and the sewers of life. Interestingly, those who carelessly fall into hole by errors are equally rescued like those who fall down the drain accidentally fell into a hole. The blood of Jesus cleanses all the muck, stench and shame of embarrassment cleaning us as white as snow. Today, maybe you convinced yourself that you have fallen too deep down beyond redemption.58db372312ea5

Romans 6:6-7 says, know that the old self is crucified with Jesus so the body of sin is forgiven. No longer be enslaved to sin for Jesus died to set free from sin. The Bible says, there is now condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. The good news Gospel is God loves you and forever so accept His love. God does not measure salvation by material possessions, status or class. Things are good, necessary and useful but things do not impress God much. God created all things so humans are stewards. God’s does not want anyone to gain the whole world and lose their soul. Salvation is through His Son Jesus Christ. And so there is no muck, stench, grime, slime, gunch, drench of sin beyond the blood of Jesus. God is sending Jesus to rescue all in the holes of sin today. Receive help and be saved in Jesus Name.

ENJOYING NATURE DAILY

IMG_20180105_121319

Within the concrete jungles of cities is a whole new world to discovered and explore the flora and fauna. Take time to enjoy nature to smell the flowers and watch the birds no matter how busy you are. Go out with friends in a group as part of relaxation to clear your head and refresh your mind. A study recommends people take a break and observe nature in detail because of the health benefits gained. You should stop and smell the roses according to this study revealing a brief time spent outdoors enjoying walks or riding in nature really does improve mood. Cecile Borkhataria for Dailymail.com wrote online.  The demands of life have become so intense that some do not have the time or feel the need to enjoy their surroundings if possible.-c-michael_werlberger-9995

Those with paranomic views and a delightful beautiful views often miss out by being too busy to notice the view. The study shows spatial awareness and being in tune with nature is good for health and encourages walkabout exercise. Fresh air breathed in also promotes healthy heart and lungs. It is even more fulfilling when done by the family as part of routine and a time for relaxation. A stroll, power walk or riding bikes in fresh air is a simple and an effective way of spending quality family time together is rewarding. Take a picnic as a cost-effective way to enjoy quality family time.361f6935fd2ecc32bf3f82f866f63462

The study found nature helps by spending time outdoors to improve happiness. People who take the time to notice nature, increase their feelings of happiness and emotional well-being  Noticing a tree at a bus stop in the middle of a city can have a positive effect. Noticing nature impacts on prosocial orientation a willingness to share resources and place value on one’s community. New research shows that there’s truth to the idea that nature and spending time outdoors can improve happiness. The study showed if people simply take time to notice the nature around them, it will increase their general happiness and well-being.

Even if it’s just birds flying in a crowded city or a tree at a bus stop, noticing nature can also improve ‘prosocial orientation’ – the willingness to share and place value on one’s community. If people simply take time to notice the nature around them, it will increase general happiness and well-being the new study has found. A University of British Columbia (UBC) study examined the effects of a two-week intervention involving nature. 395 Undergraduate students were asked to document how nature encountered affects their daily routine and made them feel.  They took photos of items that caught their attention and wrote down a short note about their feelings in response to it. Meanwhile, a second group of study participants tracked their reactions to human-made objects instead, again taking a photo and jotting down their feelings. A third control group did neither, continuing their everyday lives.unnamed

Researchers found that After the intervention, levels of positive emotions, elevating experiences and a general sense of connectedness to other people and nature and life as a whole, as well as prosocial orientation, were significantly higher in the nature group compared to the human-built and control groups. The University of British Columbia (UBC) examined the effects of a two-week intervention involving nature. Undergraduate students documented how nature they encountered in their daily routine made them feel. The photos of the item that caught their attention and wrote down a short note about their feelings in response to it revealed indepth reality of changes felt.IMG_20180105_121342

Paranomic views of the examples of nature could be anything not just about human built things so a house plant, a dandelion growing in a crack in a sidewalk, birds, or sun through a window. Meanwhile, a second group of study participants tracked their reactions to human-made objects instead, again taking a photo and jotting down their feelings.  A third control group did neither, continuing their everyday lives. Often association with nature is seen as primitive and unsophisticated. However, nature is rich with so much knowledge and relevant  information some miss out on. The push towards the virtual world is almost preventing reality check existence crucial for survival in life. It is even better if people begin to grow plants, flowers or simple foods on balcony gardens go keep in tune with nature.5761058

‘This wasn’t just about spending long hours outdoors or going for long walks in wilderness,’ says Holi-Anne Passmore, a PhD psychology student at UBC’s Okanagan campus and the lead author of the study.  ‘This is about paying attention to take in spatial knowledge and look at trees or plants in a meaningful way. Trees at a bus stop in the middle of a city has positive effects just one tree can have on people in the jungle.’ Passmore, who studies wellness, says she was ‘overwhelmed’ not just by the response of the 395 study participants – who submitted more than 2,500 photos and and descriptions of emotions – but also by the impact that noticing emotional responses to nearby nature had on well-being.

GOD’S IMAGE IN MANKIND

coloBible in Colossians 3:9-10 says put on new self in the image of God. The image of God is physical features of mankind. Isaiah saw God like a man sitting on the throne in heaven. God also reveals himself physically visibly to people all over the world including the 70 elders of Israel who ate and dined with God and Moses on the mountain. Jesus said, when you see Him you see the Father God in visible form.  Therefore mankind is made in the image of God according to Genesis. This means God is not an invisible blob too large to be contained by the universe as some think. Mankind has both God’s physical features and the God like qualities of God. As a result God’s human shape is replicated in diverse shapes, forms, and sizes not to make clones of any particular kind. God does not favour any variety of humans above another. As far as God is concerned, the standard for being like HIM is to do what Jesus says by drawing close to God. Those who draw near to God, in return God draws near to them and reveals HIMSELF to them more. Like any friendship or any marriage agreement God is in Covenant with mankind so deeply loves people and wants to have personal relationship with each one.world_pulse_2

This implies, God is the Ultimate standard all varieties of people are to look up to no matter where they live, look like, sound like or what they do in life. God wants all mankind to maintain HIS physical image and live according to God’s expectations.  This means each person is to aim to be more like Jesus who came to dwell among mankind to demonstrate the love of God on earth. Therefore rather than focus on turning people into another person each person is focus on looking more like Jesus. Unfortunately, so much time and resources are invested into turning humans into the clones of other human beings. It seems trying to be like a famous ‘idol’ makes some people think they will gain more confidence. Sadly this is never-ending until they stop looking outside themselves they need confidence in God. Some are have a false sense of self-esteem so go to extra lengths by surgery to imitate and mimic Barbie and others they want to look like. This opens doors for others to capitalise on their insecurities and opportunists fuel this insecurities to cause damage to people.22280731_135895917137860_4145777591179018240_n

Many live with irreparable scars as a result of superficial vanity of never-ending search of perfection. So search for mirage of unattainable perfection turning them into more into Frankenstein. As a result air brushed models create false dolled up superficial images imposed on society. Some whites turn themselves into black using chemicals and tablets to look as they want to fit into black community. Young people become susceptible to these false images and peer pressure creates unhealthy eating patterns to maintain false self-identity. Kim Kardashian recently took off the make up and posted her natural self-image. Her followers complained until she reposted the image they prefer of her. Another famous supermodel Cindy Crawford was told she looked so glamorous and really good on a recent cover of a magazine she replied, “she wished she looked so in real life. Many famous people are airbrushed and wear size zero because the industry prefers a certain image only. This has spilled over into work where people employed based on their looks, shapes and sizes. This unhealthy practice is now even now forced on children wanting to dress like their idols and bullying those who prefer to remain in their image.1bd58822a39ca112a1bd634289f33330--black-women-beauty-black-women-art

The Bible says, do not lie to one another, seeing you have put off the old self with its practices and put on the new self renewed in knowledge after image of the Creator. It is unGodly to force people to conform to the image of others deemed superior to damage their skin with carcinogenic chemicals used to bleach the skin. Others are banned from keeping natural look seen as unfit due to the highlighted phenomenon of colourism. Others deliberately choose white babies in vitro conception although both People catfish the image of others pretending to be somebody else they are not due to insecurity to be revealed. There is ” white” person on earth because everyone has shades of melanin from albinism to black. So those misled by adverts,   like cargo cult of skin color abandon their natural look to imitate preferred image seen as more beautiful. The natural look movement is fighting back by encouraging people to celebrate God’s image in them. This global trend promotes an acceptance of self-image and appreciation of natural beauty. This helps to overcome propaganda that started during slavery and colonialism banning people from wearing the cultural costumes, wearing natural hair styles, speaking mother tongues and eating organic healthy native foods.

It is important to understand the pressures put on people to promote the cosmetic industry to the detriment of health. Many developed incurable skin conditions by bleaching their skins, pumping industrial chemicals into their body to alter their body shapes and tanning under radiation or Sun rays to look darker. It is an irony the whites are doing liposuction to bulk up certain body parts while the blacks are whitening their skin to turn look lighter. These extremes cost money and time that could have been used wisely. God could have easily created clones on earth to look exclusively like one particular shape, colour, size or sound. Yet God chose to create diversity and variety of HIMSELF to manifest HIS GLORY and wonders through HIS creation. It is complete ignorance to look at another person resentfully to condemn them as inferior based on colourism and false preferences. Celebrate and love you image in God. You did not purchase your original image, colour, shape or size or who are yourself from a supermarket. It is God’s decision to create perfect just as you are in HIS IMAGE. Have confidence in God’s image of you and believe you are equally as beautiful as what you see in others. It is an insult to God to project insecurities and racism on others created by God through no fault of their own as God naturally made them.

 

THE LONDON FIRE OF 1666

Great-fire-of-London-in-ITV-s-new-series-518466
London fire of 1666 that happened 351 years ago on Sunday 2 September, is well known all over the world. Songs sang about the fire as written was sung as follows: London is burning, London is burning, Fetch the engines, Fetch the engines, Fire fire, fire, fire, pour on water, pour on water. London is burning, London is burning, fire fire, fire, fire, pour on water, pour on water. This song was sang continuously and repeatedly as long as the time allowed and was permitted. It was a miracle fewer people died so the official toll was six although in the aftermath of the fire more people died later from related causes. Such as homelessness, displacement, lynchings, and blaming Catholics for starting the fire. Despite the fact that the fire started from a baker’s oven and could have been averted, delay of order to contain and curb the fire caused it to inflame beyond human control.  The most interesting thing about the London fire is that, often most living history books on the fire do not mention the prophetic warnings issued before the fire occurred. This warning is documented in: Theological Works of the Reverend Charles Leslie, 1832, available from https://books.google.co.uk as recorded in a book on Theology.1666-2016-london-fire-babylon-the-great-burning
Solomon Eccles, a Quaker preacher and prophet, went naked through Bartholomew fair the year before the fire of London with a pan of fire upon his head, warning people to repent or fire will destroy the city of London. Charles’s next, sharper message in 1665 warned of the risk of fire from the narrowness of streets and authorised both imprisonment of recalcitrant builders and demolition of crowded buildings. Like the fire of Sodom and Gomorrah and modern fire of Grenfell Tower among other fires globally, often these warning signs are then ignored and the messengers mocked and ridiculed by the very people whose lives would be saved from the fire. Time and time again history records tragedy that could be averted yet somehow people ignore it take things for granted. In His Mercy and Grace, Almighty God sends such advance warnings repeatedly until time runs out. The purpose of allowing fires is mostly to shake awaken mankind from their slumber of sleep of indifference and debauchery. When all avenues of communication fails, due to break down of the relationship between God and mankind, it forces God’s Hands to take extreme measures to compel people to comply or be beaten into submission for their own good. And this also prevents a worse and bigger relentless disaster.    maxresdefault
Left to human devices, the status quo was alright as far as people are concerned. However, from God’s perspective life has taken a turn not pleasing to God. Often some people think God is archaic and draconian so no longer relevant in modern sophisticated society. The irony is that, whether mankind heeds God’s warning signs or not God does exactly as HE says. Once again, the New Year has started and to some it is business as usual. However, the trends and challenges faced globally are all part of God’s Sat Nav warning systems of the directions making is heading in general. There are numerous warnings and the Bible clearly speaks of action God is taking to enforce changes if mankind refuses to change or submit to God’s Authority’s and Rule. It is not a choice of whether one believes in God or not, but rather imminent global storms, thunders, floods, fires, hailstorm, meteorites among ammunitions used by God to force people to rethink their choices and actions in life.london-1666.jpg
These warnings signs are clearly written in Revelations in the Bible yet most people unaware of the connection between daily life occurrences, weather impact and future eternal life. Every action by all the people on earth are meticulously documented by God in the Book of Life. Take a look at storm patterns and weather charts, earthquakes, volcanoes in the world and definitely things are alarmingly different. Consequences of mankind’s ‘evil inventions’ as God calls them distorted nature and has brought about irreparable damage to earth. Global toxic waste polutions among chem trails destroy natural weather patterns, food chain and carbon cycles essential for food remedies for good health. The pursuit of happiness as, ” lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God” is extended into seeking adventure at all cost even if the environment is destroyed. So unpredictable storms, floods, sand dunes, rapid coastal erosions, ice mcap melting are all assigned as “the acts of God” of God. Although God is not responsible for the root causes of the damages and the destruction it accurate and correct to say God put actions in place by laws of nature violated implodes800px-Keeling-fire-engine-illustrationkeeling-fire-engineMoLFireEngineEdit_install 
Therefore, whether religious or not “God Corrects those HE LOVES.  It seems harsh to say, burnt down places, floods, tsunamis destroying expensive homes and the nuclear tragedy suffered as a result is “love.” But the alternative of not taking notice to reflect eventually culminates into worse disaster than London fire or Sodom and Gomorrah. This is because these places are rebuilt and restored even better than before and exist today. Despite the destructions life continues fairly normally like any place on earth. However, the difference unfolding now is the end time warnings taking place now will continue until some parts have no relief so cannot be rebuilt. Tragically, it is not only physical suffering material loss, famines, droughts, poverty, wars, death, it is fulfilment of the warnings of God’s Wrath in the Bible. Sadly, these Biblical messages and warnings often mocked as religious fundamentalism so ignored. Yet unless people begin to listen and reconnect with God there is perpetual unquenchable hellfire and damnation without reprieve or second chance to rebuild. Only God knows exact days of unfolding WRATH so worth taking life seriously to be God’s Chosen Children. All people are God’s creatures but all are not God’s Children who will live in God’s Kingdom through KING JESUS eternal Reign. Know difference and be saved from total annihilation and subsequent hell fire in Jesus Name.

MILLENNIAL SNOWFLAKES?

IMG_20171227_231736.jpgi_m_a_millennial_i_m_a_sensitive_snowflake_t_shirt-r57e8507627ad4bc988500d1178144fcb_k2m06_540Accused constantly of entitlement, lack of spacial awareness, consideration for others so assumes life revolves around them. Many young people are balanced and level-headed and matured for their age. Able to accomplish great things in life above their age. Child geniuses for example, spend hours studying hard so they perform above chronological age. Despite great accomplishment of young people some tarnish their image by actions. Blamed and labelled as fragile millennial snowflake generation is this really a fair label given them?

14639897_1166680306759543_4553867286425944653_n_1478519950_1478519954Some do not understand how the real world works convince themselves they are always right. Easily offended and emotional feel like victims dealt with by wrong hand in life. If graduate job they applied for often is unavailable, feel dehumanized and demeaned to take jobs able to do, seen as beneath them. Overate abilities and ego but excellent at computers, iPhone, yet the irony is a victim of modern success. Technology robots are creating unemployment fast and continues to make many depressed and sad. One would think any job will do under such circumstances instead, their attitude is to look for perfect job with perfect environment to make them truly happy. Hence constantly changing jobs wearing hearts on their sleeves in need of support to even function daily. imageedit_6617_9222504962Their mistake to impress interviewers is erratic, thinking prospective employers being tested. They question how ethical a company is, its attitude to the climate change debate. Is the board diverse or did it suffer from white male culture? It did not occur to precocious young talent they should try to impress the company investigated. Do not feel very privileged but suffer from relative deprivation so their generation is asked to “check their privilege.” Although surrounded by the significant adults like parents, teachers or colleagues some prefer to seek advice online through social networks. This is reason to confirm they receive wisdom from peers of the millennial snowflake generation. Their fragility is established as a narrative stick used against them.

science-science-explains-why-snowflakes-melt-easily-scientis-politics-1511012654The images here depicts explanation to justify their behaviour scientifically to convince people perhaps for empathy? Ongoing challenge is everything seems to be working against them in terms of life-long opportunities of work taken for granted by older generations. Without regular income and unable to buy own homes many compelled to live at home but prefer to own own home and space. This further compounds dependency or inability to compromise generation gap challenges and differences. Generation-snowflake-2-650millennials-450x350Millennial snowflakes deserve better to achieve good success. So it is not really true nobody cares about how millennial snowflakes turn out. Future generation bearers of society no matter how rich or wealthy a nation is the generations pass on to future generations to be in charge. Even if everything is designed to work against them, is a good idea to know the future will be entrusted to them and so they need sound foundation to build on. Even if machines take over it is humans that use services as customers or clients. Without earned income or job, sponsors required to maintain a healthy, robust youth even if companies rely solely on robots. The good news is God is aware of injustice against the young people so will intervene on their behalf. There is great change of transformation taking place to restructure the world to restore back to God as originally intended. So is important young people remember God in their youth and trust Jesus to save to heal to deliver them from disadvantage.

RELAX & ENJOY CHRISTMAS

BanDtmdIAAAqQ9GRelax and enjoy Christmas as a time of year to recount your blessings and to celebrate Jesus. Remember to thank God for sustaining your life and providing for you throughout the years. Enjoy this time of year which puts much pressure on people to spend more than ever. It is a good time to reflect and take stock of the year to assess what worked well and how to improve life next year. christmas2Above all it is good to keep in mind that Christmas is about love and the birth of Jesus Christ to save mankind. The whole world takes time to celebrate Jesus and give thanks to God for our families and our friends. Enjoy without fussing over the perfectionist details and obsessing over materialistic image, instead value the joyful festive season and be grateful and thankful for life itself. As the world gets worse it is necessary to appreciate favour of God not just material details. Christmas Day can be very difficult day for young care-leavers,” Sissay says.“For some going home for Christmas, painful and there’s arguments and dysfunction. There are young people with nowhere to go feeling sad on their own that day so feel a greater sense of loss. “It’s about making people smile to let them know they matter especially on that day.”

1400975012648So many people are homeless, or live in squalor, poor, cannot afford privilege of safe environment, in dangerous region of war zones. Thank God for the Prince of Peace Jesus and do not hurt family or friends and colleagues over your selfish bizarre stubborn behaviours that ruins the festive season. The weather affects some so can trigger unusual reactions too. With abundant alcohol and substance use can get some situations out of hand. Yet the purpose of Chtistmas is to bring joy to the world, goodwill and peace on earth. Human relations are challenged as families out of touch assemble under one roof with many shenanigans. And emotions and feeling severely tested it is good to hold tongue for sake of comprise and peace. Woman-wrapping-gifts_cejaisFun-ways-to-wrap-gifts.jpgAsk for help or advise if not sure about presents or gifts to give each person as Jesus received gifts relating to his life, call and destiny. Gifts must be relevant and meaningful to the receiver not just what you insist on giving them whether they like or want it or not. Remember the golden rule of gifts to yourself and how it makes you feel. Be kind-hearted especially with the innocent children around do not to ruin the day for them. If physically present be a part of family or rather stay distant and send presents.Dear-Tired-Mama-Its-Time-to-Relax-and-Enjoy-Christmas-1 instead of stressing all. Some might cite Christmas as a cause of breakdown of a family and their marriage. By fighting each year over Christmas among other issues toxic relationships can reach the tipping point at that time. Yet those who listen, change, adapt to enjoy Christmas but the stubborn ones continue ruining it for loved ones. Without an awareness over behaviour that the obsession with achieving that one, symbolic or perfect family causes misery not merriment. In the Bible, Jesus said in Luke 12:15, Take care and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in abundance of possessions.

407d518n663One person described themselves as a tyrant in family festive season. Fretting over every last detail for weeks ahead in a bid to make it all extra special. And refusing to delegate anything even the decorating of the tree or laying the table since none else ever got things right in their opinion. Determined everything goes according to their plans only as the control freaks the atmosphere in family home is more fearful than festive. So it seems more like a dictator than a Father Christmas sharing love, joy, happiness and kindness. Looking back, realised its not worth fussing over nitty gritty silly unnecessary details so enjoy Christmas. 

TEACH CHILDREN HUMILITY

A little girl sits like a princess with her parents bowing down to herTeach children humility to equip them to deal with the daily challenges of life. If a child behaves arrogantly but then expects everyone to treat them special, the parents wonder, ‘What has got into them?’ Each parent wants a child to feel good about themself​ but not to think they are better than everyone else!’So is it ever possible to teach a child humility in a good way without damaging self-worth? Can child be disciplined enough to understand the difference between humility, pride and entitlement as ‘your majesty the child. It is important to let the child understand respect for self and others including the parents. The parents cannot indulge the child at beck and call go become a spoilt brat and antisocial unable to relate with other children or respect authority.102017208_univ_lsr_mdYOU SHOULD KNOW

In recent decades, parents have been encouraged to yield to their children’s desires; to praise them generously, even if they did nothing praiseworthy; to withhold correction and discipline. It was thought that if children were made to feel special, they would grow up with healthy self-esteem. What has results shown? The book Generation Me states: that “Instead of creating well-adjusted, happy children, self-esteem movement created army of little narcissists.” The children raised with an unconditional praise have grown up unprepared for disappointments, criticism, occasional failure. Because of being taught to focus on their own desires, they find it hard as adults to form lasting relationships. As a result, many suffer from anxiety and depression. Children develop real self-worth, not by being constantly told they are special, but through genuine accomplishments. That requires more than believing in themselves. They need to learn, practice, and refine chosen skills carefully. Proverbs 22:29 says they also need to care about other people’s needs. 1 Corinthians 10:24 emphasises all thess require humility.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Give praise when it is truly deserved. If your daughter scores well on a school test commend her. If she gets low grade, do not automatically blame the teacher. That would hardly help your daughter learn humility. Help her to see how she may do better next time and reserve praise for actual accomplishment.

Give correction when necessary. This does not mean you should criticize your child for every mistake. Colossians 3:21 says serious errors should be corrected as well as wrong attitudes. Otherwise, these become deeply ingrained. For example, suppose your child shows a tendency to brag, if uncorrected they could become conceited and begin to alienate others. Explain to the child that boasting makes them look bad and that it could set them up for embarrassment as Proverbs 27:2 warns. Explain, that a person with balanced view of self does not feel the need to broadcast  abilities to others. Giving correction in spirit of love, you will teach humility without hurting self-respect.​ The Bible instructs parents on children’s input and Bible principles in Matthew 23:12.

Prepare your child for life’s realities. Indulging a child’s every wish can cause him to feel entitled. So, for example, if your child wants something you cannot afford, explain why it is necessary to live within a budget. If you have to cancel an outing or a vacation, you could explain that disappointments are part of life and perhaps discuss how you deal with such disappointments. Rather than shield your children from every hardship, prepare them for challenges they face as adults says Proverbs 29:21.

Encourage giving. Prove to your child that “there is more happiness in giving than in receiving as Acts 20:35 shows. Together prepare list of people in need of help with shopping, transportation, or repair work. Then take your child along as you assist some of them. Allow your child to see your joyful satisfaction as you care for the needs of others. That way you will teach your child humility in the most powerful way​ by example. according Luke 6:38.
