Parent’s duty to their children.

Parents are to receive their children from God with joy and thanksgivings. 1 Sam 1:27 For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him.

Our duties are;
· To love them (Tit 2:4) - That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children.
· To bring them to Christ (Mt 19:13) - Then were there brought unto him little children that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
· To train them up for God (Pr 22:6) – Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
· To instruct them in God’s word (Deu 11:19) - And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
· To tell them of God’s judgments (Joe 1:3) - Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.
· To tell them of the miraculous works of God (Ex 10:2) - And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son's son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the LORD.
· To command them to obey God (De 32:46) - And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law.
· To bless them (Heb 11:20) - By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.
· To provide for them (1 Tim 5:8) - But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
· To correct them (Pr 23:13) - Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.
· Not to make unholy connections for them (Ge 28:1) - And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.
· Should pray for their children (1 Ch 29:19) - And give unto Solomon my son a perfect heart, to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to do all these things, and to build the palace, for which I have made provision.

I am always impressed by those who can create scripture as if it is poetry. Thanks for coming by to see me. I would be happy to link up with you!
