Parental Priorities

Proverbs 22:6. A bird’s eye view of our parental priorities. [see also: Ephesians 2:1-3; John 3:1-5; Matthew 7:16-20; Ephesians 4:7-16; Numbers 30:2-5; I Corinthians 7:36-38; 1) That they may know Christ the savior. 2) That they may develop Christian character. In order to develop your child’s character, they must be brought into submission by you. 3) That our children learn the Christian disciplines – e.g. prayer and worship, meditation (the study of God’s Word), Christian service, outreach/evangelism. 4) That they acquire a Christian education. We much teach them the contents of the Bible. And we also much teach them how to relate the Bible to everyday life. 5) That they would discover their vocation. 6) That they establish a Godly home of their own. After the sermon, there was a baby dedication.
