SPECIAL MESSAGE TO PARENTS & CARE GIVERS

Use the lessons as a one-a-day vitamin for your child (or children) during one on one time, daily or nightly devotionals, or general family time. Teach the Gospel of Truth in informal and fun ways that will stick in the hearts of your child (or children).

Teaching and discipling children isn’t a once (or twice) a week activity at church or a daily study period at Christian school. It’s a way of life. It’s a methodical process of faith building and mind & heart training (or renewal). It’s also an intentional process of developing and shaping a Christian worldview for your child (or children).

Discipling your child (or children) involves grounding yourself and your family in Christ and requires that you live out your faith (i.e. your relationship with the Father through Jesus Christ) in spirit and truth. It is not a situation of do as I say but rather perpetual instances of do as I do. You are your brother’s keeper – in this case literally your child’s (or children’s) keeper. What you pour into them will eventually come out. How you live out your faith is not limited to the obvious (i.e. no smoking, no drinking, no swearing or cursing, etc.) but goes deeper to the heart (i.e. no harboring of self-hatred, no fear, no bitterness, no anger, no pride, no gossip and slander, etc.). It’s about personally subjecting yourself (i.e. your heart and mind) to the cross and crucifying your flesh constantly. Let each of us be our child’s (or children’s) keeper and not only teach the faith but live it out in sincerity of heart before them. “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).

In Him,
