How to Deal with a Rebellious Child (2 of 2)
Series: How to Deal with a Rebellious Child
Dr. Ernest L. Easley
We are back in Luke 15, taking another look at the parable told by Jesus: the parable of the prodigal son.
A little five year old girl came home from kinder garden. She had heard the story of Prince Charming and Snow White for the first time and was excited to tell her Mother.
While eating an afternoon snack, she said, "Mother, Prince Charming came in on a white horse and got down and kissed Snow White and she came back to life. And do you know what happened next?"
Her Mother said, "I do know! They then lived happily ever after." "Oh, no," said the little girl. "They then got married."
Getting married and living happily ever after are not always the same; especially when you have a rebellious child! Aren't you grateful that God's word speaks to EVERY SINGLE ISSUE of life? There is not an issue that you will face in life that the Bible doesn't speak to, not a single one! What more motivation do you need to learn God's word? Let me tell you something: IT IS ALL IN HERE!!!
And what we find in the parable of the prodigal son are some power principles for dealing with rebellious children! In fact, these principles can be used in relationships beyond our rebellious children, they can be used in ALL of our relationships.
So whether you have children or not, whether you have a rebellious child or not, there is something from this parable for all of us; we just have to look for it!
