Do you want obedient children?
Then become one yourself.
How many of us really believe that raising good kids starts with us being good kids that fear and love our heavenly father first?
Good, Good Father
Psalm 103:17-18 seems to imply this very thing by saying, “the Lord’s love is with those who fear Him and His righteousness with their children’s children. With those who keep His covenant and remember to obey His precepts.”
When does our love for our own kids result in blessing them most? It’s when they’re being good and godly toward others. This is especially true when they are honoring us as the 5th commandment demands.
When we are obeying God in our own lives he is anxious to bless us with all good things. This includes God blessing us with kids that we can truly delight in.
