Stewardship, Part 8 – Children

Ephesians 6:4

Parenting is more of an art than a science and we must work hard be good artists!  The best place to learn good parenting is from our perfect role model, our Father God.  Remember you down own your kids but you are meant to grow your kids and you are accountable for them.

Kyle discussed four primary components that go into good parenting: Delight, Demonstration Doctrine and Discipline.  George Barna in his book “Revolutionary Parenting: What the Research Shows Really Works” talks about the concept of spiritual champions, defining them as “individuals who have embraced Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord; accepted the Bible as truth and as the guide for life; and are seeking to live in obedience to its principles and in search of ways to continually deepen their relationship with God.”  Will your kids have the opportunity to become spiritual champions for Jesus because of you or in spite of you?
