In this sermon, I share ten things a person with children is responsible for. This is part 1 of 3 in a series of talks on godly parenting.

There’s a saying that goes, “Fathers, because life doesn’t come with a manual.” Aside from feeding, clothing, and sheltering a child, a parent has ten major duties to fulfill if they want to consider themselves a good parent.

Listen to the sermon to get the full explanation of each point.

  1. Equip children to be the best version of themselves.
  2. Equip them to be a contribution to the world.
  3. Children are copies of you: Make them strong where you were weak.
  4. Equip males to be husbands and fathers; and find their purpose.
  5. Do not try to live through your children. Let them have their life.
  6. Equip females to be wives and mothers (virtuous and prudent).
  7. Instruct children in the ways of God (moral values).
  8. Prepare them for the world, tell them the truth, and tell them how the world works.
  9. Protect them and show them how to protect themselves both physically and spiritually.
  10. Set them up on a strong starting point: wealth and/or health.
