SIX THINGS WE OWE OUR CHILDREN IN STEWAREDSHIP

Unconditional Love

Romans 5:8

This love is not based on performance, and provides security between the parent and child.

Constructive Discipline

Proverbs 14:24

Discipline is done for the child, not to him.

Time Together

Deuteronomy 6:4-7

Playing, conversing, working together, and teaching is all quality time.

Christian Model

Ezra 7:10

Parents all called to study God’s Word, live it, and teach it.

Respect

Ephesians 6:4

Parents are not to disesteem children, but respect that they are different in personality.

Foundation of Faith in Christ Jesus

2 Timothy 3:15-16

You’ll only take your family out of this world.
