Beloved

We are having a weekend Children ministry’s conference in this chilly Winter and the attendance is very good. Today is Sunday, my address to the parents is The importance of a Child as it appears here in PowerPoint.

Enjoy it and use it if you want, no copy rights.

Living by the word of God
6:1“THESE are all the commands, laws, and regulations that the LORD your God told me to teach you so you may obey them in the land you are about to enter and occupy, 2and so you and your children and grandchildren might fear the LORD your God as long as you live. If you obey all his laws and commands, you will enjoy a long life. Deuteronomy 6:1
Parents Responsibility Towards their Children
6And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands I am giving you today. 7Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are away on a journey, when you are lying down and when you are getting up again. Deuteronomy 6:6
Children are ready to hear

Foundation..
“If the foundations are destroyed,
What can the righteous do?
The LORD is in His holy temple;
The LORD’s throne is in heaven;
His eyes see, His eyelids test, the children of men.”
(Psalm 11.3-4).
Introduction

Sometimes I have heard parents remark, “There is no manual that comes with children.”
Implication is, you just do what you think is best in raising children, trial and error
Sadly, the advice from the world about raising children often conflicts with Divine truth, God’s manual for parenting

Children believes in you.

What Family is all About
Matrimony=Marriage
Alimony = Maintenance
Acrimony=War, Hostility, Fighting,Restlessness,Pains

CHILDREN ARE GIFTS FROM GOD PSALM 127:3-5
Raising Godly ChildrenPSALM 127:3-5
Give children spiritual values not things only

2Ti 3:15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
2Ti 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;
2Ti 3:17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
CHILDREN ARE GIFTS FROM GOD

TEMPORARY PLACED IN THE HANDS OF PARENTS

LEADERS IN THE BIBLE
THEY WERE CHILDREN FIRST
Teach Children To Be Responsible
Parents must teach children how to be responsible in their behavior
They need to learn how to work, how to give to others, how to willingly serve God in all areas
Childhood, especially teenage years, should not be a time to indulge children by satisfying their desires but should be a time of developing into mature responsible adults
WHO ARE THESE LEADERS?

JEREMIAH WAS BORN FOR A PURPOSE.
MOSES WAS BORN FOR A PURPOSE
DAVID WAS BORN FOR A PURPOSE
JESUS WAS BORN FOR A PURPOSE
MANDELA WAS BORN FOR A PURPOSE
CHRIS HANI WAS BORN FOR A PURPOSE
HECTOR PETERSON
JOSEPH A GREAT DREAMER
THEN YOU AND ALL OF OUR CHILDREN
Recognize The Lord’s Authority Over Parents And Children

Col 3:20 Children, be obedient to your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing to the Lord.
Col 3:21 Fathers, do not exasperate your children, so that they will not lose heart.

PROVERBS 22:6
Recognize Children Are A Gift From God
Children are gifts given by God into the temporary care of parents
Parents’ goal should be to return children as gifts to God, teach them to serve the lord above all else
Look at Samuel as an example
Application to us today – train our children that they might obey the gospel and be faithful to the Lord. PROVERBS 6:22

Psa 127:3 Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Psa 127:4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth.
