Lies We Believe About Children: A Recap

Sorry for the delay, but here is the recap of the parenting section of Lies Women Believe, found on pages 84-87 of the companion guide:

Psalm 127:3-5
Psalm 92:13-15
  • TRUTH: Parents cannot force their children to walk with God, but they can model godliness and cultivate a climate in the home that creates an appetite for God and is conducive to the spiritual nurture and growth of their children.
Psalm 103:17; 144:12; Isaiah 54:13
Ephesians 5:5-6
1 Corinthians 11:1

To say that children are precious to the Lord is an extraordinary understatement. We cannot fathom the depth of His love for each and every one of them, and as the individuals whom He has so graciously and generously chosen to care for them on this earth, we, their parents, need to make sure that we are treating our task with the gravity and attention that it deserves. Even if you are not a parent, I can almost guarantee you that there are children in your life, whether within your family or at your church, who need to see Christ and His principles being lived out in you just as much as in their parents. It's often the "cool" aunt or uncle or family friend that those kids are going to want to be like. Make sure that you are choosing to live your life in a way that honors and glorifies the Lord in every way. And remember to PRAY! Prayer, prayer, prayer!!! Pray ever so hard for the hearts and souls of every little child in your life whether they are your own or not. Never stop fighting for those kids. Satan sure won't, so we must make sure we are putting up the best fight we've got through prayer and washing in the Word!
