Raising Godly Sons and Daughters
a rock solid marriage starts with parents raising Godly sons and daughters. Parents,
we should not take God's instructions for His children with a
Frank and I have been blessed with three Godly sons, which are on
loan to us from God. If family were not important to God He would not
bless us with the ability to procreate. God's will is that we raise our
sons and daughters in the Lord.
I know that if you are reading this then you have been blessed with
children too. The truth is it is not difficult raising Godly sons and daughters
when we take parenthood with the importance it deserves.
Has not the Lord made
them (husband and wife) one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why
one? Because he was seeking Godly offspring. So guard yourself in
your spirit and do not break faith with the wife of your youth. I hate
divorce , says the LORD, God of Israel. (Malachi 2:15-16)
Showing them the importance of Christ
and His principles for righteous Christian living ultimately raises
Godly children. Parents are to be the example to their children.
We should never expect someone else to raise our children or be their
example--because God has called parents to do that.
Teach them to your children, talking about them
when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down
and when you get up. (Deuteronomy 11:19 NIV)
Teaching Our Own
Christianity is a lifestyle, which teaches us to put our trust and
faith in Jesus Christ and to follow His example as much as humanly
possible. Showing by example rather than preaching seems to get the
message across better to teenagers and young men.
Train them in the Word of God. If you are sending your sons and
daughters off to public school where they are taught about worldly
affairs it will be more difficult to raise them in the LORD because they
will receive mixed message. Here is an example: It will be confusing for
them to hear about how they evolved from monkey's or clams in school and
then come home and be told about God's creation of the whole
Public schools teach our children the opposite of
Christian living. Christian parents who send their kids off to the
public schools to get slaughtered are not acting in the LORD. Not to
offend anyone, but it just doesn't make sense.
Public schools teach people how to be somebody
in the world, which is fine and dandy, but they do not teach about
values, morals and love of neighbor, do they? What do you think is more
We firmly believe that it is the Christian
parents duty to teach their own and to raise Godly sons and
daughters--these things should not be left up to society.
Train a child in the way he
should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. (Proverbs
Am I saying the Christian children who go to
public school will grow up ungodly? The general rule is that raising our
children up in the training and instruction of the Lord teaches them the
things of God, which are family values, respect and love, but none of
these things are found in public schools today. It would seem to be
rather confusing for the young Christian person today.
School age boys have only one thing in mind
when it comes to the opposite sex. It is this kind of attitude and
environment that we are throwing our children into. Do you think that
public schools teach that fornication is a sin? No, instead they teach
about "safe sex" and put condom dispensers in the hallways.
Need I say more?
Public schools do not teach our sons how to be
men, but they do teach young ladies how to be feminist. The bottom line
is you can't raise Godly sons and daughters if you are sending them off
with the wolves in sheep clothing.
