Tips For Good Parenting
How do we raise godly children in marriage? One of the reasons God brings two
people together in marriage is for the purpose of raising godly children, children who
look like Him. Malachi 2:15 says:
Has not the LORD made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one?
Because he was seeking godly offspring.
And yet the most stressful time for any couple is parenthood. New parents often
report more conflict and lower satisfaction after having an addition to the family,
due to the fatigue and strain of parenthood.
However, those who have had training in parenting e.g. Duranno Father and Mother
schools do have an edge over others as will be more prepared to face the challenges
In order to raise godly children, the following are recommended:
- Parents must model godliness. Children often model the character of their
parents. Paul urged Christians to be imitators of God (Ephesians 5:1)
- Parents must discipline their children. It means to train them in the same way God
trains us. Hebrews 12:5-11 says “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline..”
- Parents Must Teach God’s Word. This is what Moses commanded Israel’s parents.
Deuteronomy 6:6-9. He said: These commandments that I give you today are to be
upon your hearts. Impress them on your children.
May God grants us all wisdom to raise up godly men and women of God for His glory.
