During my Son's visit, they shared with us a view of the costume Elias will wear for his trick or treating outing. Fortunately, his costume is not of the scary sort. I have always felt that 'cute' would be the only kind of costume I could possibly approve of for my Children or Grandchildren. While I had no say in this costume, I am just tickled pink over the choice. A cuter Yoda character you will not see!
I suppose a disclaimer is in order. My two Sons as children were allowed to dress up in costumes for trick or treating. However, as time passed, and I came to understand Scripture more, I came to the conclusion that Halloween is a pagan celebration, not unlike the rituals passed down through the ages and certainly one which has no place in a Christian follower's life. It is a delicate subject to broach. It is for that reason that I seldom do." 'Tis best to live your life as you see fit, and let others do the same." I do try to live by that adage, but when you know something of great importance, and there is any degree of danger involved, but still you don't share it.... then you in a sense become responsible for any harm which befalls due to ignorance.
As to my own Sons, they are adults. They know my feelings and views. All I can do is pray for them always. My hope is that they would seek to know the Lord more. To walk closer to him, to want what the Lord wants for their lives. To seek to please him over all others, even when that may be difficult.
When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
