We can’t afford to overlook children or to think of them as unimportant; they are the future. Girls and boys are always observing the behavior of the adults in their lives, which means we have a wonderful opportunity to be examples of godliness and influence them for Christ.
We start by investing our time. Whether it’s through outdoor activities, reading together, or playing games, we’re modeling Christian living. As we listen to them closely, we’ll understand the way they think and the struggles they face. Then we can offer scriptural guidance to influence them toward righteousness. By sharing something of our past and admitting our mistakes, we’re making it easier for them to identify with us and accept our counsel.
Showing children God’s love is a great way to help them grow in godliness. Although we can’t do this perfectly, each time we love them unselfishly and unconditionally, we’re helping them realize how much the heavenly Father loves them.
Born-again parents, family members, teachers, and friends can all help to raise godly Christ-followers. So whether it’s at home or in your neighborhood or church family, look for opportunities to spend time with children. Listen to what’s on their heart, and demonstrate Christ’s love for them. You may influence a young life for the Lord.
Jentezen Franklin (December-03-2022) Daily Devotional: Raising children
“It takes wisdom to have a good family.” Pr 24:3 NCV
At an educators’ conference, one colleague condescendingly asked another’s wife, “What is it that you do, my dear?” The husband later wrote: “My wife…shot back, ‘I’m socializing two Homo sapiens into the dominant values of the Judeo-Christian tradition in order that they might be the instruments for the transformation of the social order into the kind of eschatological utopia that God willed from the beginning of creation.’ Then [she] asked…sweetly, ‘And what is it that you do?’ The woman answered humbly, ‘I…I…teach sociology.’” The Bible says, “It takes wisdom to have a good family, and…understanding to make it strong” (v. 3 NCV).
Wisdom is the ability to see with discernment. Understanding is the skill to respond with insight. If you succeed at everything else in life and fail at home, nothing else will matter. One author writes: “We must fill our children with light so they can discern what’s dark…help them cultivate a life of peace so they recognize discord…educate them on what’s right so that what’s wrong has glaring contrast. We must love them so fully that they’re not trying to stave off emptiness…offer the sweet scent of truth so they can smell a lie…build their confidence in Christ so they’re not easily dismantled by others’ opinions. We must build their foundation on a rock so they [recognize] unstable ground…bring them up so it’s difficult for others to bring them down…and teach them to pray for wisdom so they realize being smart isn’t enough.” As parents, you and I may not see the return on our investment right way, but “at…the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up” (Gal 6:9 NLT).
