To all the Dad’s out there, Happy Father’s Day! Have a great day with your family!
I’d like offer you some timely advice that can provide the direction you need to teach your children well and lead them on the path of Christ-exalting discipleship.
Have you ever wondered, “What are the most important things I can teach my children?” The Bible is a big book. When it comes to passing on God’s truth to the next generation, where do I start?
I recently listened to two sermons by John MacArthur that answer those questions quite well. These teaching sessions are part of a series entitled “Creating Shade for Your Children.” MacArthur takes you through the book of Proverbs and summarizes ten critical truths that we need to share with our kids.
NOTE: These sermons are available for free in print, audio and video format here –
Here are the 10 biblical principles our children need to learn from us:
1. Fear your God
2. Guard your mind
3. Obey your parents
4. Select your companions
5. Control your desires
6. Enjoy your spouse
7. Watch your words
8. Pursue your work
9. Manage your money
10 Love your neighbor
Did you notice something quite obvious here? These 10 truths aren’t just for kids, are they? This is what anyone of any age needs to focus on. Amen?
Certainly if we are going to immerse our children in these teachings, we must have a thorough understanding of them ourselves.
So I urge you to take time to read or listen to this material. It could change the lives of both you and your children.
