Education built on solid rock

11 August 2016, 14:30 Prince Aduroja Olamiju David

Yes, of course!!! "Education is the most powerful weapon which can be use to change the world" Now that we live in a world where nations, societies and families struggle as a result of culture which hostiles to Godly values, there is an increasing search for productive answers and justifiable strategies that works more effectively. How exactly can we create an incredible legacy that will build and sustain our children in this fast moving age?

Children themselves are glorious blessings especially if raised with discipline and kindness. You have heard before now, that if you refuse to discipline your children, it proves that you do not love them and you are not worthy to be called a succeeding parent that trains child or children uprightly. If you love your children, you will be prompt to discipline them wholeheartedly.

Sincerely speaking, education without discipline will only raise sophisticated criminals who end up compounding the problems of the society. Let us start setting it straight from the family level within the home. Nothing is more certain, if we judiciously set the cardinal straight, every other thing will fall into rightful place with little effort. Therefore, parental upbringing of a child and the environment where a child is been trained determines how morally, socially, psychologically and academically oriented the child becomes in the society.

Discipline is on of the greatest key factor that mold a child uprightly. Truthfully, you must be disciplined! . Discipline yourself as a parent, a teacher, an instructor and a guardian. You cannot give what you do not have. If your children will have to join the train of distinctive leaders of tomorrow, knowledge alone can't do the job.

Teach the children Godly character, educate them towards the way of life that pleases God. Teach than by example, teach them by the way you live your life. One of the best way to live and lead is by distinctive example. Do this and you can be sure that you have your children's education built on the 'Solid Rock' . Ignore the charge or fail in this area, I sincerely bet that no one in this world can help you.

Believe me, you should mind yours today . Candid speaking, nobody is ready to listen to the disastrous stories of your failure in life or the number of challenges you came across while acquiring success strategies but, numerous number of people are ready and will always be ready to celebrate and benefit from your success you painstakingly and judiciously achieved from distinctive discipline and education.

Get inspired, get motivated, and endure uprightly to achieve distinctive success in life.
