Father, help my children not to be like many others around them, but let them be "alert and self-controlled" in all they do.
(1 Thess. 5:6 "So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled.")
I think that is one of the hardest things to do, I know that my dad lives by this verse but unfortunately when pushed so much a child its hard for them to even except it or even want to. But, I think this a very good verse and it teaches us that just because we are a Christian or not like all the other kids that we are still good people and we are following God and are seen more favorable in his eyes!
