1. Our commitment to raising our children to know the Lord.
2. Our desire to protect our children.
“God never intended His children to know evil. He wants us to be wise about what is good and innocent about what is evil. Satan is the one who told Eve to taste for herself. And he wants us to fall for that same lie.
Moms, our task is not to bring up children that fit in with this world. Are your kids weird? I hope so. I hope they seem like they are from another world. If we are fitting in with the world then we are conformed.”
I don’t want my kids to learn about homosexuality in elementary school or to endure bullying. They don’t need to be exposed to the evil that is in this world; they will experience it soon enough.
So, yes, I do want to shelter my kids in order to maintain their innocence and purity as long as possible. And if that makes them appear “weird” in the eyes of the rest of the world, then so be it!
