'" BASIC PARENTING "
by Pastor Tony Sutton


                      
                        

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
THE FAMILY
     
  1) FIRST, GOD SET THE FAMILY UP AS A MALE AND FEMALE COUPLE.
        MANY VIEW THE MARRIAGE AS A CHOICE. SOME THINK YOU MAY HAVE BEEN BORN HOMOSEXUAL (BIG LIE FROM SATAN). ALLOW ME TO SHARE ONE VERSE THAT WILL SHED SOME LIGHT ON THE THOUGHT
.
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
      
2) SECONDLY, YOU WILL FIND THAT GOD SET THE FAMILY UP IN A WAY THAT SOMEONE IS IN CHARGE, OR RESPONSIBLE.
Eph 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
Eph 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Eph 5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
       
3) THIRDLY, THE FAMILY SHOULD BE GOOD EXAMPLES, BOTH SPIRITUALLY AND IN OUR EVERYDAY LIVES.
1Thessalonians 3:5
For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labour be in vain.
Hebrews 3:13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

THE PARENTS
       
1) FIRST, PARENTS SHOULD LEAD BY EXAMPLE.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
             
2) SECONDLY, BOTH PARENTS NEED TO BE SPIRITUALLY FIT.
1Timothy 4:8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
             
  3) THIRDLY, GOD MUST BE NUMBER ONE IN BOTH OUR HOME LIFE, CHURCH LIFE AND EVERYDAY LIFE. CHILDREN ARE LITTLE MOMS AND DADS.
Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

                
PARENTS HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY OFTEN TAKEN LIGHTLY. THE BIRTH OF A CHILD BRINGS HAPPINESS AND JOY. WE SOON FIND THAT WITH CHILDREN JOYS CAN BECOME HEARTACHES AND SORROWS. AS WE GROW WE LEARN TO ADAPT TO THE CHALLENGES OF PARENTHOOD. WE WANT OUR CHILDREN TO BE THE SMARTEST, THE MOST ATHLETIC, AND ACHIEVE THE HIGHEST OF GOALS. WE THINK DOCTORS, LAWYERS, THE PRESIDENT, THE LIST GOES ON AND ON. THE ONE THING A LOT OF PARENTS OVER LOOK IS THEIR CHILD'S SPIRITUAL WELL BEING. WHILE IT IS GREAT TO WISH THE BEST FOR OUR CHILDREN'S EARTHLY FUTURE, THEIR ETERNAL FUTURE IS MORE IMPORTANT. WE WILL SPEND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ON OUR CHILDREN IN SPORTS, SCHOOL, GAMES, VEHICLES, AND WHAT EVER ELSE THEY DESIRE, BUT OFTEN THINK THAT SALVATION WILL JUST APPEAR SOMEDAY. WELL, WE NEED TO BE INVESTING IN OUR CHALDERNS FUTURE WITH ALL THAT WE ARE AND WITH ALL THAT WE HAVE. MONEY WILL BUY THINGS, BUT ONLY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST WILL BUY SALVATION. AS MUCH AS WE LOVE OUR CHILDREN, DO WE LOVE THEM ENOUGH TO SUBMIT TO GOD, AND RAISE THEM IN A GODLY HOME. IT MAY SEEM THAT WE HAVE A LONG TIME TO GET READY. Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
