Responsibilites for you, Faith for your child

“Parents are accountable before God to meet their responsibilities to their children, He  is vitally concerned about their welfare. Jesus said that anyone who would hurt the faith of a little child would be better off sinking in the sea with a millstone attached to his neck”. (Pg. 81)

Loving your children is an obvious duty for a parent. But disciplining your child is also part of the obligation we have as parents. When we think about hurting a child, we sometimes think in terms of physical or verbal abuse which can and does sadly happen. But what about robbing them of the benefits of a strong faith. Aother facet of parenting is discipline. Failure to teach your child self-control can damage their faith. Now obviously the child must be willing to learn and obey. But if we want our kids to have strong faith, then discipline will be a part of their learning process.

Matthew 18:6

“But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, 1 it would be better for him to have a huge millstone 2 hung around his neck and to be drowned in the open sea.

Sorry about the gap between posts. I have been traveling as of late.
