RAISING OUR CHILDREN IN CHRISTIAN HOMES
8Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.9They are a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck.
1: 8 Actions do, indeed, speak louder than our words. This is especially true in the family. Children learn values, morals, and priorities by observing how their parents act and react every day. How they understand the world is shaped by how their parents go about their daily living. If parents and grandparents exhibit a deep reverence for and dependence on God, children will catch these attitudes. If you have children in your care, let them see your respect for God. Be an example of Godly living by praying, worshiping, and reading the Bible with them and with others. Make sure they see how you act out your faith in a way that’s consistent with God’s Word.
1: 8 Proverbs places the responsibility for raising children to become wise adults squarely on fathers and mothers. Parents must bring their children up to honor God and know his Word. If you are a parent, rely on God for help every day. Read the Bible and seek wise Christian counsel on how to disciple your children. If you are living at home with your parent or parents, ask God to teach you through them.
