Charles Stanley (June-02-2020) Daily Devotional: A Parent’s Positive Influence.

Yesterday we discussed the spiritual impact of mothers and fathers. Today I’d like to mention other areas that are shaped by parental example: relationships, money, and vocation. While these three things don’t directly impact salvation, they do affect quality of life, so we should yield control over them to the loving, omnipotent, all-knowing Holy Spirit.

Relationships—Kids are more likely to avoid the wrong crowd when they see Mom and Dad carefully choosing their own friends and then treating those people with grace and love.

Money—Before our children can use money well, they need to know that everything they earn is actually a gift from God. Wise parents both teach and model that money’s true value lies in its being a means of meeting needs and blessing others.

Vocation—Boys and girls should grow up knowing God has a plan and will for their life. And if parents always strive for excellence because they’re serving God, kids will grow up knowing everything is to be done for the Lord, regardless of who the human boss is.

Despite what the world thinks, true success is not about having the most money, the best job, or the best-looking spouse. Success means keeping a God-centered attitude and letting that spill over into all areas of life.
