The more one
learns about something, the more it becomes a part of him, and the more
important it becomes as this happens.
For those believing
that they can't make a difference, the pursuit of knowledge is something
infringing upon their own selfish purposeless time wasting leanings toward
excess, TV, the bar scene, sexual titillation,
laziness, etc. In short, they just don't see themselves making a difference,
so they might as well devote time to making the self happy and comfortable,
and let everyone else worry about the rest. They limit their capabilities
by excluding involvement in disciplines presenting potential for quality
consequences. Many have not been taught to make a decision and stick with

Parental responsibility is enormous.
Encourage a child to learn and he'll learn! No. Not in a week. Over the
coming years. It takes much quality time to be thoroughly involved with
all that your children are and will become. And how do you do this with
both parents working more than 6 hours a day, 4 days a week. Most people
are in forced servitude to their
jobs; that is, they must work to survive. In this fast paced world
most can only earn enough to live to earn enough to live another day. Work
and driving to it requires far too much time. The work week has made many
the working weak.
A 6 hour
work day, 3 or 4 days a week should provide more than
enough money to well support a family of 4 or 5, including money for interesting
pursuits, holidays, etc. It
takes time and dedication to develop and for maintenance of quality
individuals; i.e., volunteer work,
etc. Unlike governments today that devise legal means to deprive
people of substance, God's government will ensure people own their own
property safe of authoritarian
greed, and with no fear of their earned substance being depleted. The government

be like that.
To produce quality
children, parents need time to acquire knowledge.

tidbits of knowledge with their children. Are the parents excited about
new things learned, excited to share with their kids what they've learned?
What did you as a parent learn today that could be shared with your children?
important to teach and encourage children to learn and think about what
they know, because emotion
follows thought. Psychologist Adrian Raine of USC, in a research study
resonance imaging found that deceitful,
violent, antisocial men have a reduced amount of gray matter in the
brain's prefrontal cortex. Not
that they were born that way, but negative decisions lead to more negative
decisions, till lack of hope allows the spirit
to be sapped of vitality.-...continues
