Christian Parenting Advice

Christian Parenting Advice

By Rolf Garborg

Think of your own relationship with your Heavenly Father.  He has shown you a perfect model for parenting, and that model has two sides—receiving and giving.  Everything we have we have received from God and everything we have received from Him is intended to be passed on to those we meet, especially our own families.  So, what Christian parenting advice has God modeled for us?

Unconditional love

It’s a love that isn’t based on our behavior, but on His nature.  We don’t deserve it, but He never withholds it from us. 

Unilateral forgiveness

When Jesus cried out from the cross “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing,” it was the first thing that He said.  Before He said “My God, my God, why have you forsaken ME,” He said “Father, forgive them” even while they were committing the worst deed in human history.  

A call to come into His presence and learn from Him

We are given the privilege to be yoked with Him, and to communicate with Him.  He loves us, He forgives us, and now He says, “My door is open, come in and let’s talk.”

To Rely on the Holy Spirit

God has blessed us with His Comforter, His Holy Spirit, to be our constant companion.  He is the One who enables us to walk in righteousness and gives us the boldness to speak the truth in love.
