TOPIC: GODLY PARENTING IN AN UNGODLY WORLD (PART2)

Scripture: Proverbs 29: 15. The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.


Beloved I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! In continuation of what we started yesterday on parenting.

Why the need for godly parenting?

1. It is because God demand for it because that is the reason He is interested in your marriage.

2. It is because training children has timing and if you missed the timings you will lost the child to the devil. (For details of this check yesterday meditation)

3. It is because any child untrained in a godly way will bring you shame at last. The Bible said:

Proverbs 29: 15. The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

Do you know it is a shame for you to be doing mighty things for the Lord and your children did not follow your footsteps. That was the headache of Samuel!

He was a mighty prophet of the Lord yet his children choose not to follow his footsteps;
1 Samuel 8: 5. And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.

4. Understand that foolishness is bound in the heart of every child(Prov.10:13)! It takes godly parenting to correct such anomally. The Bible said:

Proverbs 22: 15. Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

Therefore godly parenting is a must do for every parents

What is godly parenting?

Godly parenting is parenting according to the Bible. It is nurturing your wards/children to be godly and that is only possible with the word of God.

Our world has developed various methods of parenting! Some according to culture and tradition, some according to psychology, others tend to repeat the same cycle that was used to raise them whether right or wrong .

This explains why those who were raised under cruel and bitter parents tends to be bitter, cruel and maltreat whoever lives under their care.

However, when we look at nurturing children from the lens of the word of God which of course is the Bible we will have correct perspectives to godly parenting.

What are godly way of parenting in an ungodly world?

1. Application of a rod of correction:
Proverbs 22: 15. Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

Proverbs 13: 24. He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.

The rod speak of discipline. There are parents who doesn’t have any disciplinary measure for their children and such the child is left to himself.

Every parents must have a special way of disciplining their children. It could be by floggings, kneeling, pick pin, frog jump etc Yust be firm in your disciplinary action and it must be born out of a heart of love for the sake of correction.

The Bible said if you don’t discipline your child because you claim to love them that love is hatred in God sight. But if you truly love then you must discipline them.
Proverbs 13:24; If you withhold correction and punishment from your children, you demonstrate a lack of true love. So prove your love and be prompt to punish them ( TPT).

Beloved, if you weren’t disciplined by your parents and now you have started raising your children with the same way. Please understand today that it is biblical to discipline your child. The discipline mete out to your children is a proof of your love for them.


Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. To spend eternity without Jesus is going to be a painful eternity. Give your heart to Jesus today.
