Preliminary observations
Preliminary Observations

  • The direction we take our parenting will have a direct bearing on society.

  • Yet, while acknowledging the need for good parenting, society disregards much of what God’s word teaches.


Preliminary observations1
Preliminary Observations

  • As parents we may not be able to control overall direction of the world, but we CAN have an impact on OUR children.

  • Prov. 22:6 cf. Ezekiel 16:44

  • You have been entrusted with a soul!


The role of father
The Role of Father

  • Prov. 20:7, 17:6

  • As head of the house he has responsibilities.

  • Consider this in 1 Tim. 3:4, Titus 1:6 & 1 Tim. 3:12

  • Much of what leaders do applies to all Christians. Such responsibilities apply to all fathers.


The role of father1
The Role of Father

  • His responsibilities include:

  • Providing 1 Tim. 5:8, cf. Matt. 7:9-11

  • Protecting his family

  • Ephesians 6:4

  • Colossians 3:21

  • Prov. 3:11, 12, Heb. 12:7-11


The role of father2
The Role of Father

  • He will love his children

  • Heb. 12:5-11

  • Prov. 13:24

  • Consider the prodigal – Luke 15:11-31, 20-21

  • Abraham – Gen. 17:18David – 1 Chron. 29:18-19Job – Job 1:4-5


The role of father3
The Role of Father

  • The greatest example of a Father’s love – God and His Son

  • It is truly tragic how many fathers either neglect or abandon their responsibilities.

  • Will we be COURAGEOUS to be godly fathers?


The role of mother
The Role of Mother

Love her children

Generally it is a natural thing (though much is learned & developed)


The role of mother1
The Role of Mother

  • Titus 2:4 Love her children Why this command?

  • Not all women love their children – Rom. 1:31

  • The need to learn what is best (not what is wanted)


The role of mother2
The Role of Mother

  • Consider1 Tim. 2:15

  • “Saved in childbearing” The best meaning is that she fulfills whatever role she has been entrusted with, including raising her children properly.


The role of mother3
The Role of Mother

  • Manage the house

  • 1 Tim. 5:14, Titus 2:5

  • would include doing her part in raising the children (she has authority over them!)

  • It is a mistake to think only the father is to discipline his children. Mothers & fathers support each other in raising their children.
