Do you take parenting seriously?

Many professing Christians do not. While most are indeed happy to have children, it seems that few have taken seriously God’s command to be fruitful and multiply, to instruct children in the ways of the Lord, to discipline them often, and to raise a godly seed.

If more Christian parents took seriously their God-given calling and responsibilities, they would be far more fruitful and faithful. Moreover, the “children of the church” would then look, speak, and act much less like the impudent “children of the world” than they presently do.

God calls you to take parenting seriously:

“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward.” (Psalm 127:3) So “be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it…” (Genesis 1:28). Then “bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4) And rest assured, when they are old, they will not fall away. (Proverbs 22:6)
