Is it time for my child to move on?

Is it biblical to ask an adult child (22) to leave the home after many chances of asking them to comply with rules and they don't? This adult child has a child of his own in the home also.


It is extremely biblical for you to ask him to leave and begin to act like a man. The bible tells us that if they won't work, they don't eat. The bible says that a man is to leave his mother and father and cling to his wife. By having a child, he made the decision to leave you even though he may have never taken the woman as his lawful wife. You have every right to expect him to be a father and caretaker of that child. The only way that is going to happen is when you quit rescuing him and allow him to begin trusting God to provide for his needs. Pray for God to give you the wisdom and the words to use to explain how things will be from now on. Then stick to your word!
