From childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, . . . able to make you wise for salvation through faith. 2 Timothy 3:15
Each Christmas I give both of my daughters a Mom box. Each box contains items to encourage them to be the best mothers they can be. It might have craft books or special projects, devotional books or tapes geared toward young moms, first-aid kits, recipes for cooking with kidsand often something personal like bubble bath for a little pampering after a tough day of mothering! Its become a tradition that Rosemary and Tanya have looked forward to every year for the last decade.
Encouraging our children to be good parents can begin even earlier. The best way is to start equipping them with the Word of God while they are still young.
The apostle Paul wrote that from childhood Timothy had known the Holy Scriptures (2 Tim. 3:15). And 2 Timothy 1:5 mentions the genuine faith of Timothys mother and grandmother. That faithful teaching and spiritual influence helped to enable Timothy to be a godly man.
The Bible is our richest resource to help us raise children who will know and love Jesus. Nothing is more essential than the Holy Scriptures to equip them for all of lifes challenges.
What are you doing to make the next generation wise for salvation through faith? (3:15).
Parents, give your children guidance
And instruction from Gods Word;
Then with wisdom and compassion
Teach them how to love the Lord.
The character of our children tomorrow depends on what we put into their hearts today.
