Introduction – A Christian Family: A Learning Centre for Life

Can you remember some of the things your parents taught you? From baking to planting vegetables, our parents have been our first teachers. They not only taught us basic skills but also instilled in us kingdom values such as kindness and forgiveness. This is exactly how God planned it – a Christian family is meant to be a learning centre.

Learning and Growing

In families, we learn not only how to walk, talk, and eat but also wisdom, spiritual maturity, and good relationships. Even Jesus, the Son of God, needed a family to help him grow physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially. Mary and Joseph played a vital role in his upbringing, shaping him into the person he was meant to be.

The Responsibility of Parents

Raising children well is the primary responsibility of a Christian family. While others, such as teachers and church members, may play a part, parents bear the ultimate responsibility. It is part of their job description to guide their children towards growth and development in all areas of life.

Prayer for Parents

Let us take a moment to pray for all mothers and fathers, that they may have the wisdom and strength to fulfil their role as parents. Pray that they will do everything in their power to help their children grow strong mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually.

Remember, a Christian family is not just a place of love and support, but also a place of learning and growth. As parents, let us embrace our role and strive to raise our children in a way that honours God and equips them for a purposeful life.
