Raising Godly Children

Monday, December 14th, 2015

It is God’s utmost desire that we raise our children in His fear, so that they will become an ensign to the world around them. No one can help raise these children in a better way than you (the parents). The Church, the School and the Society cannot take your place as parents, in this regard.

Your children are meant for signs and wonders. “Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwells in mount Zion” (Isaiah 8:18).

The greatest inheritance you can leave for your children, is proper upbringing in the fear of the Lord. The Christian upbringing you give them today, will remain with them for life and they can impart the same to their children’s children, thereby raising a generation of godly children.

When you nurture them in the fear of the Lord, you would have secured a great and glorious future that cannot be dashed or tampered with. Your children must be raised on a solid foundation, because if the foundation is faulty then there is no guarantee for the future. No wonder, the Bible says in Psalm 11:3, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

The foundation of your children shall not be faulty in Jesus’ name. Invest in their foundation today, so they can be a blessing tomorrow. I pray that all parents reading this article, today, will find joy over their children tomorrow in Jesus’ Mighty Name.
