Is There Any Future For Me?
Do you feel there is no hope for you because your problems are so great? Have you lost control of your life? Have you ever asked, "Is there any future for me and my family?" The answer is, "Yes!" But only if you repent, and begin to live for God and please Him daily (Acts 26:20; Rom. 12:21; Eph. 5:10; Prov. 31:25).
There is a future for the righteous because even if you die, you will be resurrected to live forever (Is. 3:10; 1 John 2:17; John 5:28-29). Only the wicked, who will not repent by serving others for God and thus learn righteousness, will perish (Is. 3:11; 26:9-10).
As parents, you are to live for God by training your children to do what is right. You must teach them to obey and not to argue. Teach them how to help with family chores and responsibilities, such as keeping their rooms clean. Your children need to learn not to give in to peer pressure, to do what is wrong. Instead, they need to be examples of light by continually doing what is right, at school and at play (Ezek. 14:20; Eph. 6:1-3). Soon you will notice that your children are changing too, and life in your home will be more peaceful and beautiful.
God is looking for people who will be examples of righteousness for Him, whether they be children or adults. There are plenty who are examples of lawlessness and sin for Satan. God has promised if you seek to please Him by practicing what is right in His sight, He will help you solve your problems (Eph. 5:10, 17; Matt. 6:33; 1 John 3:22).
