Parental Role Modeling
  • Text - Genesis 18:19(KJV)
  • 19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

Parental Role Modeling
  • The Message Bible:
    • Yes, I’ve settled on him as the one to train his children and future family to observe God’s way of life, live kindly and generously and fairly, so that God can complete in Abraham what he promised him.”
  • Command = Training (not dictatorship!)

Parental Role Modeling
  • There are many promises that God has in His word for us (or that He has spoken to us about individually) that may not come to pass, if we fail in our responsibilities as parents!
  • Fulfillment of God’s promises are contingent or dependent on our effectiveness as a parent!
  • Parenting is therefore one of the most important responsibility you will take on as an adult, the impact of which will affect multiple generations after you!

    • What styles of parenting did you notice?
    • Mistakes noticed in the parenting styles?
    • What did the parents do that contributed, even if in part to the children’s outcomes?
    • What could the parents have done differently that would have produced better outcomes for the children?
      • Is the rod always a good choice for correction?
      • Can you achieve same or better results in training & correcting without the rod?
