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