There’s no doubt, parenting is challenging!
The goal to raise Godly children is challenged by a spiritually bankrupt culture.
Busy lifestyles leave parents drained without emotional or spiritual reserves needed to nourish their children. While the constant pull of the ungodly influences demand that children be prepared or sucked into the downward spiral. There is a tremendous need for parents to be encouraged, taught and held accountable to shape the destiny of precious children that Almighty God has placed in their care. The church should be a refuge where parents can be refueled and receive directions that will help them accomplish their God given responsibility.
It’s not enough to see a problem.
Parents know they have a problem. Parents need solutions! They need encouragement! They need role models. They need vision, insight and wisdom. They need support. So many parents don’t have any kind of support system in place.
And what do we do about it?
- It’s easy to gripe!
- It’s easy t0 point fingers.
- It’s easy to make excuse why we have the family problems that exists today.
- It’s easy to stick our head in the sand and hope it fixes itself.
But while we gripe and point accusing fingers, it only grows worse.
It’s not the fastest way. And it’s not the easiest way, but investing is parents consistently and deliberately is an effective way to equip parents.
Find out what parents need.
- Ask them questions that give you insight to needs.
- Pay attention to what they say and what they don’t say.
- Listen and observe the children.
- Provide opportunity for them to interact with other parents.
Make good resources available through conferences, book and video lending and training class.
Provide low cost family activities where they can discover and celebrate the joy of doing things together as a family.
Be careful that the family is never pushed off the church radar.
