Raising the future
Leading our future to Christ by leading our children to Jesus. This program is to teach parents how to lead children to Christ. We all know parenting is something we all figure out. As we go hoping that we do a good job, praying that our children are Christians.
So this article is geared toward helping parents leading their kids to Jesus Christ, with techniques from the bible, and using God as our example to be parents.
First off, you will always be their parent, no matter what they do, or what you do. God gave us children to be our children not our friends. It is good to trust your kids and encourage them to trust you. When you raise your children they will hold to how you raise them. Trust is essential in our relationships with our children just like is essential in our relationships with God.
Do not be afraid to discipline your children if you love you children you will discipline them when they do wrong. Disciplining teaches them to have self-discipline. It teaches them that there are consequences to there actions and that there is such a thing as right and wrong. Just know that even if you teach them this that we are all sinners.
That being said they are bound to make mistakes. Love them even in spite of their mistakes. That is the way that God loves us he doesn’t hold it against us. They are learning with their relationships with us how to have a relationship with God. Pray with them teach them to have a relationship with God. Be there for them like God is there for you.
Don’t just teach them your ways teach them God’s ways. Share the things that God has taught you, with them. Don’t shove the bible in there face or use scripture to belittle them. It is not your job to convict or save your children. It is God’s choice to save you children so pray for them ask God to start a relationships with them and teach them about Himself. Ask him to show Himself to them, to be there for them too.
Teach them the gospel, then show them how to have relationships. Show them how to love, how to be friends, how to treat others. Teach them what love is, what relationships are all this is learnt by the children watching you, not hearing it from your mouth, but by your actions the way you react with both the child and others.
What is love?
1 Corinthians 13: 4-7
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
This above is the best example of love what it means to love and what it means to be loved. Teach them to look for these traits in a spouse and in other teach them to love like this.
Let walk trough breaking these traits down. To love is to endure for long periods of time to endure what people dish out. It is kind or nice and patient. It does not it is not proud or boastful for example look what I did for you now you do this for me. Love is honesty and being trusted and being able to trust others. It endure all things believes or trust all things hopes in all things.
Giving you an example of love I would have to use my aunt and uncle as an example. My aunt would get up every morning with my uncle to help him put his shoes on this was not cause he could not do it himself it was because she loved him. Her way of showing him love was to help him with that.
Love is an action it is caring about someone on the same level or more than you love yourself. When I was a kid I decide that people I loved I was not going to cling to them. Love is wanting someone to be happy even if that means there not around or happy with you. That goes for relationships and brotherly love as well.
Our kids learn by doing what they see not by what you say. Be an example for your children show them. The way to live as Christians show them the way to Jesus Christ.
