Are we giving our children simple, Biblical based answers to their questions or do we act stunned and dismayed when they ask us things? Do we go on and on about things they really don't need to know about yet or do we give them these simple, well guided answers so they are content for the time being. Are we as parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents and adults reading books with substance along with the Bible so that we can learn how to deal with these questions and conversations with children or are we getting our knowledge from television and radio? If you spend much time in front of the television having things put into your brain that are sinful and Godless, I encourage you to turn them off and pick up a wonderful book to read. There is so much to learn from the Godly generations before us. Don't forget that even as adults we are suppose to be careful with what we hear, see and put in our minds.
At the end of chapter two, Corrie is frightened and distraught over a family that lost a little one. Her father comes to tuck her in at night and this particular night she fell to tears.
"I need you!" I sobbed. "You can't die! You can't!"Father sat down on the edge of the narrow bed. "Corrie," he began gently, "when you and I go to Amsterdam - when do I give you your ticket?"I sniffed a few times considering this. "Why, just before we get on the train." "Exactly. And our wise Father in heaven knows when we're going to need things, too. Don't run out ahead of Him, Corrie. When the time comes that some of us will have to die, you will look into your heart and find the strength you need-just in time."
I believe that the above part of the story needs no explanations. It speaks for itself.
