Discipleship Parenting

Discipleship parenting is how we are going to win back the next generation. It is returning to God's plan for parenting that we read about in Deuteronomy 6:6-9:

These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates.

Discipleship parenting involves three parts: teaching the truths of the Bible, boldly living them out, and standing on them.


3 parts of Discipleship parenting

Know

God has given Christian parents the responsibility to teach their children the truths of the Bible, which means we need to know it. This happens by being people that read it on our own daily.

Live

Actions speak louder than words. Our kids see if we are not living out what we teach them. We need to take God's Word and show them what it looks like to live it out and the adventure of following Jesus.

Stand

As parents, need to be there to help our children stand against the attacks of this disbelieving world by equipping them with answers to the skeptical questions of the day.
