Children parent’s pride

 Posted on: 18 January 2016    Focus on Family


Children are gifts from God, they are a reward from Him. Psalm 127:3. Children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children, Proverbs 17:6, so the outcome of a child solemnly depends on you as a parent, for God has given them to you, to love , respect , cherish and bring them up in the way of the Lord so that when he is grown, he will not depart from it, proverb 22:6.Your success as a parent is like a mirror reflection seen in your child.

A happy family is but an early heaven. Wise parents knows that their worth does not lie in the things they do for their children, but in what they teach them to do for themselves. Build a relationship as a parent with your child. Ephesians 6:4. Give your child room within the boundaries of your trust to experiment and grow into the man or woman God created him to be. As a parent appreciate your child even when he or she does not deserve it by so doing you are giving him every reason to believe in himself. Self- reliance is the greatest gift a parent can give a child.

God sends children to enlarge our hearts; and to make us unselfish and full of kindly sympathies and affections. So the moment you become a parent you are no longer living for yourself but for your child, be the father or mother you wished you had, a husband good enough for your daughter and a wife good enough for your son.

In everything set them an example by doing what is good. And in your teaching as a parent show integrity. Don’t worry that your child never listens to you; worry that they are always watching you as a parent. The greatest power for good is the power of example.

Conclusively, if you must be a successful mother and father play by God’s rules and bring up your children in the way and fear of the Lord who is your solid foundation. Let every parent remember that one day his or her child would follow their examples instead of their advice.
