Good evening friends. Thanks for stopping by for Treasure Tuesday. Today we are going to discuss some things we can use in our homes to help us in raising Godly children.

Bringing your children up in God’s ways so that they will follow Him is a daily task. We need Gods word to guide us to be Godly parents. Here are some suggestions that I use to keep God in front of my children:

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is
old he will not depart from it.”
Proverbs 22:6

1. Pray for and with your child
.Let them see the reality of your faith as you turn to the Lord in prayer when problems or hard times come, or just for God’s help with decisions each day. Encourage them by your example to praise God for the blessings of life every day. Let them see you pray and pray with them to teach them they can talk to God any time.

2. Teach them to pray for their future spouse. Always talk about their future spouse. When having any talks with your children about sex, feelings they might have, temptations, always let them know these things are saved for their spouse.

“Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
Deuteronomy 6:7

3. Read the bible when they are young and with them as they grow older. Teaching this at a very early age helps them to always turn to God for everything. The more they know they more they are ready to take on the world.

4. Listen to your child– When there is a moment to talk with your children always take that time. Even when you think they are not listening they are hanging on every word. Be apart of their life everyday, ask them questions and always talk about subjects as they come up.

“Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and you
shall keep my Sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.”

Leviticus 19:3

5. Dont let TV, computers, cell phones, games systems take up your time, turn them off and spend time with your children – Having a family night is a great time for the whole family to bond. Paying board games, reading Gods word, talking.

6. Enjoy your children and spending time with each of them alone. This is a really great thing to give each child some alone time with each parent. Helps build a strong bond and know they talk to either parent.

“My son, keep your father’s commandment, and forsake not your mother’s teaching.”
Proverbs 6:20

7. Pay attention to child when they are talking.
Value such times when you will gain an insight into your child. Listen to your children. Don’t always be the one talking and telling them what to do. Their ideas are valuable.

8. Make valuable time with your children over material things.
Dont get caught up in making money that you lose all that goes on in your child’s life. Making valuable time with your family will make a difference.

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger,
but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”

Ephesians 6:1-4

9. Remember you’re the parent and this is one of the hardest but most rewarding jobs you will ever do.
Take it seriously and do not spoil or give into your child. You are only making life hard for yourself and others who come into contact with your child.

10. Teach them boundaries and what the consequences are for overstepping those boundaries.
Set the guidelines and consequence of the house and stick to it. Once the children know that there is no swaying mom and dad they will have all the guidelines down in no time. Consistency is the key to teaching them boundaries and consequences.

11. Be accountable. Walk the walk and your kids will remember and mimic that in their own lives. When your wrong say your sorry in front of your children and move on.

“Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
Deuteronomy 11:19

12. Take them to church and get them involved with church activities. Talk about what they are taught and clarify anything not clear. Encourage them to get involved with activities with other kids like them. Helps them grow and serve.

With the guidance of God in raising your children you will insteel in them a spirit that will stay with them always. Its a gift to be parents and its our job to raise them up Godly. This is a job I take very seriously and spend hours teaching my children Gods ways. Watching the Lord work in our family has bee such a blessing.
