Train Up A Child The Way He Should Go — It’s Your Job As A Parent

Train up a child the way he should go.

Train up a child the way he should go.

Parents have such a commanding responsibility in the way they raise their children. The current climate of inclusion and political correctness makes it difficult to teach what is godly and what is not. But ultimately, the responsibility of teaching belongs to the parents.

Train up a child in the way he should go,and when he is old he will not depart from it. (Prov 22:6)

The way he should go means that the child should understand his place in the kingdom. He needs to know that he will stand before God one day. (Thank you, Bill Johnson for that message.) He’s not going to learn that at school. He may not learn that at church or Sunday School. I didn’t when I was young.

Teach your children the reality of God. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, so the works that Jesus did, we can do too. Teach him to pray to move mountains. The faith of children is astounding.

If you became a believer after your children got old, it’s not too late to pray for them. A parent’s prayer is straight from the heart. Trust God and do not panic if your kids don’t know God. Praying for your kids is just like praying for anything else. You have to believe completely for what you ask for, then relax and trust. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. (Jam 5:16)
