Sermons about Parenting
Week Three’s Bible story, Hannah wants to become a mother but is waiting for a baby (1 Samuel 1:9–2:1). Even through the sadness of her prayers, God gives her the strength to wait until the time is right. Our Bottom Line is: When you think you can’t wait, tell God about it. God wants us to talk to Him when we’re facing a difficult time.
Much has been written about the love of a mother, so much that you would think that love almost comes naturally for a mother. But you ask any Mom and if she is honest, she will tell you how God used her children to fine tune her motherly love. And the more children she had, the more fine tuning she received. Love is a very important aspect of parenting, but there is a facet of love that is absolutely essential to develop if you would aspire to do the very best for your child. If this is of interest to you, listen on...
What does it mean to be a Christian mother, father and child? A Christians employee, employer? Ephesians 6:1-9 gives us some guiding principles.
It is a scientific fact. Due to something called cytoplasmic RNA mom’s have a bit more genetic impact on little junior than does dad (sorry guys). And moms also play a huge role in the spiritual development of their children. Praise God for godly moms! Two thousand years ago a godly mom by the name of Eunice had a huge impact in the life of her son Timothy. Who was she and what did she do?
In Week Two’s Bible story, the Israelites grew impatient waiting for Moses to finish meeting with God (Exodus 32:1-35) and asked Aaron to build an idol for them. Our Bottom Line is: When you think you can’t wait, don’t forget what’s true. God had put Moses in charge of the Israelites and led them out of slavery. But in a moment of impatience, they forgot everything they’d experienced.
We’re starting this month off with a Bible story about when Esau comes in from hunting and is very hungry (Genesis 25:24-34). Because he can’t wait, Esau ends up trading his entire inheritance for a full stomach. Our Bottom Line is: When you think you can’t wait, think twice. Don’t give up what’s best for something immediate.
The passage at the end of Ephesians 5 is the most direct instructions about the roles of different members of the household. Paul, continuing his instructions on living a life worthy of our calling (Eph. 4:1), gives instruction to the Ephesian Christians about how the household and its members should conduct themselves in relation to each other. The traditional view of marriage and roles is upheld. A complementary view of the role of men/women is supported. The interdependence of the family to grow in the grace of Christ and serve the Lord is the goal.
Parenting is a balance of NURTURE and ADMONITION.
