Godly parents, Godly children

“He will direct his children.” Ge 18:19 NIV

Speaking about Abraham, God said, “He will direct his children…to keep the way of the Lord.” Can God say that about you? When you get serious about raising godly children, God puts the focus where it belongs—on you! If you want to see important truths sail right over your children’s heads, try teaching them something you’re not personally committed to. Do you think your child’s just being difficult? No, they’re watching you like a hawk! If your actions demonstrate that what you’re teaching them isn’t important to you, it’ll never be important to them either. And can you blame them? If you’re devoted to chasing material things, they will be too. But if you devote yourself to serving the Lord, they’ll be drawn to Him as well. Do you want to enjoy a long, happy life? Pass God’s teaching on to your children, and to their children after them (See Dt 6:2). Notice, your love for the Lord comes first: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart” (Dt. 6:5 NKJV). Surprised? You shouldn’t be. When your lifestyle demonstrates your love for Christ, He’ll attract your child like nothing else on earth. Do your children see you reading the Bible? Do you discuss its truths with them in an engaging way? When behaviors and values come into question, do you lead them to the Scripture for answers? Why is this so important? Because the Bible says, “Another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord” (Jdg 2:10 NKJV). In order to raise godly children you must teach them God’s principles, and practice them yourself.
