God has made each one of our children special in his or her own unique way. Our main goal as a parent is to ensure our children are everything God made them to be.
So what does "success" mean to the Christian parent? For me, it's to raise my kids in a manner that cultivates their hearts for God.
Here are some parenting traits that will help build a pathway for your child as he or she matures into the adult God desires them to be.
Teach them early and often when it comes to the gospel message.
It’s essential that we pour into them the truth found in God’s Word and the amazing grace that He has bestowed upon us.
Instill in your children that they are "fearfully and wonderfully" made by a God and that has a special purpose for their lives.
Their self-esteem is not derived from man. Rather, their self-esteem is rooted to their understanding of how much their God loves them.
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:14
Dedicate time each day to acknowledge God in your lives.
Our faith in Jesus is foremost a relationship and not a once a week event. Allow your children to find the joy of walking with Christ every day by being in His Word together and spending time in prayer on a regular basis.
Always reinforce that our greatest life goal is to glorify God in all we do.
When it's all said and done, this is the essence of life—to glorify God with our lives.
"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31
