Inoculate Them!

Michael Pickford

Parents generally have their children inoculated for the purpose of giving them immunity against various types of potentially fatal diseases. What responsible, caring, and loving parent would consider shirking this responsibility? Would you plea that you were just too busy to do so? Probably not. However, there is a disease even more deadly than any physical ailment. Physical ailments harm and destroy the body; spiritual disease-sin- kills and destroys the soul(Rom. 6:23). Are you inoculating your children? We have our children physically inoculated by taking them to the health department and having them injected with a mild form of the disease or virus. We inoculate them spiritually by bringing them up in the training and admonition of the Lord(Eph. 6:4). Are you praying with them? Reading the Bible to them? Giving them the proper example to follow? Physical inoculations are a one time affair; spiritual inoculations include daily shots of Godís word. Your childís physical health is important; but isnít his spiritual health even more so? Inoculate them!
