Teach Your Children First. Train Up A Child In The Way He Should Go: And When He Is Old, He Will Not Depart From It. The Rod And Reproof Give Wisdom: But A Child Left To Himself Brings His Mother To Shame. You Have Been In This World Before Your Children Got Here. God Brought Them Through You For A Purpose; You Should Teach Them About Life Before The Devil Gets To Them. When You Teach Them From Home, You Have The Opportunity To Form In Them Godly Perspectives. Have You Taught Your Children About The Kind Of Friends They Should Have And The Kinds They Should Not Have? Have You Taught Them Who They Should Do Business With? Have You Taught Them About Money? Have You Taught Your Children The Dangers Of Committing Sexual Immorality And How To Avoid It? If That Child Commits Fornication Or Is Taken Advantage Of By An Adult Because You Did Not Talk To Him Or Her About It, You Would Have Failed In Performing Your Duty As A Good Parent.

Raising Godly Children? Sermon and prayer point by pastor E A Adeboye

Memorise

Ephesians_6-4: And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord

Ephesians_6-4: And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord

And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:4

Read: Ephesians 6:1-4
1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Message

Matthew_18-3: And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew_18-3: And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

When God gives you children, He expects you to raise them in a godly manner. For this reason, He sent you this express command in Proverbs 22:6:
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
This passage of Scripture tells us to “train up a child“. In other words, even when God gives you several children, each of them requires personal attention. Every child is different from the other. Never lump children together without making out time to teach, instruct, correct, rebuke, discipline and lead them by example individually. Every child that God gives to you is hungry to take something out of you. Let them take the life of Jesus out of you. Personal attention is very crucial to the development of your children and wards.

Also, carry them along with you when you are going for church programmes. There are parents who leave their children at home when they are going to church. When you ask why they do that, they say their children are already youths and should be left to decide things for themselves. That scenario suggests that the parents are carefree. If you fail to bring up your children in the way and admonition of the Lord, you will be courting trouble. Joshua’s resolve in Joshua 24:15 is very important to us here. He said both himself and his household would be devoted to the service of the Lord. In other words, he must have made serving God an attractive thing to his family.

There are some pastors’ children whose primary desire is to become pastors; other careers or professions are secondary options to them. Their desire shows that their parents have done a good job on them. But if you are a pastor and your child says the last profession he will ever consider is to be a pastor, check it out, something must have gone wrong in the training of that child. Do you always paint the ministry in bad light to your children? How do you present the Christian faith to your children or wards – as interesting or as a burden? Do you just dole out dos and don’ts to your children, or do you take out time to patiently explain why things should be done the way you want them done, and why certain things should not be done? It is your responsibility to raise your children to fear and love God.

1-John_4-4: Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

1-John_4-4: Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Key Point

While some families are raising leaders and builders of nations, others are raising miscreants and misfits. Everyone will give account to God over how they raised their children.

Jesus Does not Respond To Us Based On What We Deserve To Get


Ephesians_6-1: Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right

Ephesians_6-1: Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right

A wise friend once said to me, “If you give your kids only what they deserve, you will rob them of a healthy life. Don’t give them what they deserve; give them what they need. Just like Jesus does for us!”

 

Deuteronomy_6-7: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Deuteronomy_6-7: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Raising Godly Children. Parenting With Grace

 

Jesus doesn’t respond to us based on what we deserve to get. He responds based on what we need. He provides for our needs even though we are undeserving. He died for us while we were still in rebellion against him. He allows us to grow. He doesn’t force us to clean up our act before he comes into our lives. He meets our needs and gives us the grace and the space to grow.

 

When I thought about how difficult it was to see my kids develop some troubling characteristics, even belligerence and rebellion, I suddenly saw the parallel with our Father God and all of his children. Every one of us is rebellious. We pout. We shout “No!” in our spirits. We sneak around doing what we know we ought not to do. And yet He accepts us wherever we are. He refuses to abandon us or give us what we so richly deserve; he pours great rivers of (amazing) grace into our lives. As David marveled,

 

He Does Not Treat Us As Our Sins Deserve

Or Repay Us According To Our Iniquities.

For As High As The Heavens Are Above The Earth,

So Great Is His Love For Those Who Fear Him;

As Far As The East Is From The West,

So Far Has He Removed Our Transgressions From Us.

As A Father Has Compassion On His Children,

So The Lord Has Compassion On Those Who Fear Him.

(Psalm 103:10-13)

 

Thinking about the grace of God will help you become a grace giver to your children. Their imperfections help you to see your own. Accepting them as they are helps you to taste the wonder of how God accepts you as you are.
