Life Trainers

Psalm 78:5-7 (NIV®)

He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Parents are life trainers. That’s the task commanded by God. The capacity of children to learn is staggering, and parents are to shape their character and their thinking. I meet parents who say, “Pastor, I don’t want to influence my child’s opinions. I want them to form their own.” Who do you want to influence them? Advertisers? TV? The neighbor’s kids? I’m all for teaching kids how to think for themselves, but God gave us the responsibility to influence that process for Him. Let’s give our best efforts to training our young people and pray that we will have a generation of godly adults rising up around us.

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, forgive us for turning our backs on Your truth. Give us perseverance to be godly parents and teachers. Grant us understanding hearts that we may walk in Your ways and influence our families for You. Through our lives may Your Kingdom come and Your will be done on earth. In Jesus’ name, amen.
