In this mini series on Christian parenting we will dig into God's Word for direction on Christian parenting. This episode will present an overview of the series which will include discussions on Christian Instruction, Discipline, the Relation between the Husband and the Wife, and teaching your children responsibility. We will also highlight some of the problems we face in our culture because of incorrect views of family and children and see that children are not ours, but the LORD's, who loves them more than we do! We are simply stewards of these children, who are gifts from God to be nurtured and raised for His glory.
Join Pastors Nathanael Mayhew and Ben Libby as they take a look at a few positive and negative examples of Christian parenting in the Old and New Testament. They will look at these examples as well as passages that give us direction in our Christian parenting and consider the application of these truths to our lives as Christian parents. Join us for a helpful review of the important responsibility of Christians in their role as parents.
Following the holiday of "Parent's Day" yesterday, Pastor Nathanael Mayhew takes a look at the concept of parenting in our Word of the Week. The word "parenting" will not be found in your Bible, but the concepts surrounding parenting are found from beginning to end of God's Word. Children are a wonderful gift from the LORD and raising those children that God has given is a serious responisbility and privildge. As parents our chief goal is to instruct our children. Yes can and should teach them about reading, writing and arithmetic, but more importantly, we are to teach our children the "Fear of the LORD, which is the beginning of wisdom." We also are called to discipline our children. Foolishness is bound into them by nature, and the LORD has given parents the responsibility of disciplining them to teach them what is right and what is wrong. Finally, the LORD reminds us that as parents we are to serve as an example to our children of what a godly life is, and how Christ has redeemed us from sin and death. May the LORD give us strength and wisdom in our parenting, that we may raise up godly children who know and fear the LORD!
In our CPR episode this week Pastors Nathanael Mayhew and Mark Tiefel take a look at the very important topic of Christian parenting, looking specifically at three different aspects: instruction, discipline, and showing love and respect.
Christian instruction lays an important foundation for parenting in general. The importance of instruction is seen in both the Old and New Testaments. In Deuteronomy 6:6-9, Moses teaches the children of Israel the importance of Christian education: “And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." In Ephesians 6:4, the Apostle Paul writes, “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”
Discipline can be a difficult subject to talk about in our society today, but the Scriptures, especially in the book of Proverbs, emphasize its importance. We look at two important guidelines about Christian discipline and talk about the importance of consistency.
Finally, we look at the importance of showing our children that we love them in a way they will understand and discuss how we can encourage our children to use their gifts to serve others.
We pray that this study will benefit you as you seek to raise your children “in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”
