Ephesians 4:31 – Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
This is a conversation over heard in a restaurant by two gentlemen in their early fifties.
“What time do we have to get back?”
“We got enough time to drink our coffee. So, man…what’s up with you? Still dealing with that son of yours?”
“I am so ashamed. I just don’t know what to say or to do about it.”
“What do you have to be ashamed about? This doesn’t have anything to do with you…right?”
“Well. Yes. It does.”
“Anyway, I wouldn’t put too much into it. These kids nowadays do it all.”
“But, I didn’t see this coming. My son has a good head on his shoulders and just got hired at a large accounting firm…I just can’t figure out why he now wants to tell people that he is gay. It makes no sense to me….none whatsoever.”
“Look at it this way, Josh. Thank God he’s grown…you don’t have to deal with it. Besides, he will eventually get it together.”
“I don’t think so. He and I had a terrible argument last evening and his mother had to pull us apart.”
“Well, maybe you should leave him alone for right now. Sounds like the two of you need some space.”
“I thought about that…but you know…I just love my son so much….and I don’t want to see him get hurt…you know what I mean?”
His friend nodded his head and the two men sat across from each other in total silence.
No matter how much a parent may desire for their child to be perfect, it will not happen. No one is perfect.
So what does a parent do when their children declares they have chosen to live their life that goes against the Word of God?
One thing to be sure is that you don’t stop loving your LGBT children.
You have to love your children. Unconditionally love your child. Pray for your children.
But one thing you must never do is to compromise your belief, nor allow the devil to deter you from doing what the Lord requires us to do.
Finally, for all those Christians who believe that creating and establishing laws and regulations to force someone to be “straight” it is useless.
Loving your LGBT children is the love that a child needs.
Ephesians 4:32 – And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
