So… about that last post: the title that I didn't even refer to in the post. A word of encouragement about parenting is that it is never too early or too late to build disciples. It may feel like it, but God gives us wisdom for the age and time of life of each of our children if we ask Him. Now is the best time to start!
"The Great Commission" (from Matthew 28:16-20) gives all believers a purpose statement and the power to live it out! As disciples of Jesus, we've been given the charge to make disciples, and I believe that at home is the place to start! Verse 20 says "teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Teaching our children God's Word is so important to giving our children roots for their own faith to grow. Thankfully, verse 20 states, "And surely I am with you always…". I'm so glad that Jesus is with us as parents, to give us wisdom for each day and situation. Let's remember to ask Him for all we need today to be the parents our children need!
