TCW Minute: Raising Godly Children (Week of June 18, 2018)

2018-06-22T13:14:45+00:00 Jun 18, 2018|

Raising children who love and obey God.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

With the abundance of child-rearing resources, it may seem surprising that the New Testament has only one verse that directly addresses the issue.

Ephesians 6:4 says, “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”

“Don’t provoke” means don’t be overbearing.  “Bring them up” implies a daily, ongoing endeavor.  “Discipline” means correcting sinful behavior and attitudes with appropriate punishment.  And “instruction” means teaching God’s ways and will.

Above all, explain the gospel, because only a born-again heart will love and follow God.
