Parents To Raise Children With Understanding

Prov. 22:6

Parents often focus on making enough money to be able to cater for the needs of the children. Rearing children goes beyond paying the school fees, feeding, buying clothes and gadgets and having a roof over their heads. It involves transferring the parents’ spiritual, social and moral values to the children. It requires a lot of time, energy and patience to successfully accomplish this. There are competing forces, which want to take control of the children – the social media, the TV and internet, the society at large, and peer pressure from the children’s friends. When parents with biblical moral standards fail to inculcate in their children the parents’ values, the children are often hijacked by these other forces. On the other hand, some parents are so anxious about their children’s success that they do not give the children the freedom to develop on their own. These parents want the children to be statues of their parents’ imagination. The children therefore lose their individuality.

Point of Emphasis: God demands that the parents should train their children the fear of the Lord.

Prayer Point: Grant parents the wisdom to train the children in the proper way.
