Parenting- Day 41

March 28, 2012

Deuteronomy 4:9

9 “But watch out! Be careful never to forget what you yourself have seen. Do not let these memories escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to pass them on to your children and grandchildren.

 

FAITH STORIES

It is amazing how quickly we forget or dismiss the ways God has been faithful to us. We become distracted, self-sufficient, or focused on a new problem. God knows these human tendencies. That is why He asks us to actively remember His blessings. He takes it one step further by instructing us to share these stories with our children. Children learn from example. If parents model a faith that is alive and real, it will have incredible influence on them.

Ephesians 6:16 talks about taking up the shield of faith to defend against the evil one. Your family’s shield of faith can be constructed with stories of God’s faithfulness and provision.

Take the time to communicate to your kids the many ways God has blessed you. It is an affirmation for you and an example to them.
