In this episode of Medi-Share's Something to Share, two parents, Courtney and Mikaela, talk about their efforts to raise their children to become followers of Christ and future godly men. While their perspectives of being a mother and a father may have some differences, their overall philosophy of raising a child in the Christian faith remains the same - teach them how God wants us to live and God will take care of the rest.
A child is designed to have both a father and mother. Be sure to seek out godly male role models if that is lacking in your home.
As a parent, you should always try to point your son to the truth and teach the truth as found in Scripture.
If you’re able to teach and point them to the truth, God will take care of the rest.
Every conversation can be a way to talk about God’s truth. Sometimes it may hurt a little bit, but it’s too important to miss!
Treat your son the way you want him to treat others.
There are phases of parenting. At first you’re a hero when they’re little, then you’re not as they enter the teen years… To support your child during the time you’re not a hero, make sure your son has other positive influences and role models in the church.
Don’t overstate or understate your role as a parent. You have massive influence, but there is a lot out of your control too. Do your best and trust God with the rest!
