3 Habits of Wise Parents

1 Thessalonians 2:7-12



Scripture does not provide guarantees, but it does provide wisdom for parents.

 

A Preliminary Point: If possible, parent together; either way, trust in God

 

3 Habits of Wise Parents

 

  1. Set the example
    • Live a life that begs the kind of questions to which Jesus is the answer (N.T. Wright)
    • Leverage your advantage: Your children want to be like you
  2. Charge them to follow
    • Observe the gifts and abilities God has given them
    • Call them to develop and use those gifts for God’s Kingdom
  3. Cheer them on!
    • Encourage them when they fall short; celebrate with them when they succeed

 

Take Home Idea: Wise parents will set the example for their children, then charge them to follow and cheer them on as they do.
