The parenting purpose
What is the primary purpose of parenting? It is to introduce them to Jesus. Christian parents teach their kids to fear the Lord. The fear of the Lord is a good thing. It is a healthy fear. It is to put God in his proper light. The Bible says the fear of the Lord. Is the beginning of wisdom. It is also being obedient to God's Word. Jesus says to follow Him. Pick up the Bible and learn how to follow Him. We as parents must be an example. Teach our children thru being an example daily. When they see us doing this then it will flourish in their mind. Your children need to see you walking in Christ daily. And in freedom. You have been set free in Christ. Let Christ live inside of you.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1 NIV)
Your children may go astray . But don't give up on them. Pray for them. Let them know that you are not perfect. And that you have made mistakes too. But tell them that Jesus has changed you. And that He will help them too. Regardless of what they have done. Remember the Bible says to train up a child in the way they should go.
I pray that the Lord will help us to see His ways. Be blessed in Jesus Christ. Amen.
