Do you consider how to teach your children good character? This may be an overwhelming subject for some parents who feel they are fighting all the negative influences of the world.
The good news is that you are not alone in that battle. The Bible teaches us the many qualities that make up men and women of character.
Teach Your Children Good Character
Good parents will teach their kids good character. In our postmodern and relativistic day, how do we know what good character should look like? Well, we won’t settle it in under a minute; but if Scripture is our guide, here is just one aspect of good character that could translate into other healthy attitudes in our kids.
Proverbs 24:17 says that we shouldn’t gloat over our enemies’ failures. Do our kids see us rejoice when our political opponents fail miserably? Are they allowed to brag, laugh, and carry-on in the midst of their opposing sports teams embarrassing failures and defeats? Or, can they rejoice with those who rejoice, while mourning with those who mourn?
