Today’s Battle Drill Devotional: Head Up the Family Learning Centre
Read Proverbs 31:10-31. Can you remember some of things your parents taught you? I remember Mum teaching me how to bake. I can recall Dad teaching me how to plant vegetables. I was also taught Kingdom values like kindness and forgiveness.
And that’s exactly how God planned it. He wants families to be learning centres. Not only do we learn basic skills like walking, talking, and eating in families. It’s also where we can learn wisdom, spiritual maturity, and good relationships. Even Jesus needed a family. Mary and Joseph helped him to grow physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially.
Raising children well is the responsibility of every family. Others – such as teachers and church members – play a part. But the primary responsibility falls to parents – it’s part of your job description! Let’s pray for mothers and fathers everywhere, that they will do what they can to help their children to grow strong, mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually.
