PREPARATION FOR CHRISTIAN PARENTHOOD

Photographs
by Ann Geddes

When I was a boy in my father's house, still tender, and an only child of my mother, he taught me and said, "Lay hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands and you will live.
Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.
Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honour you.
She will set a garland of grace on your head and present you with a crown of splendour."
Listen, my son, accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many.
I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.
When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble.
Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life.
Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men. (Proverbs 4.3-5.1)
By tradition, fathers have been very much on the periphery of child bearing and nurturing, but their role in both these aspects are  vital in providing what God has intended  for your child.
The importance of being the  right daddy to any child will be reflected in how the child will relate to his or her Heavenly Father.
Any  aberrations , deficiencies or  strife within this relationship of child and daddy, will scar the  abba (daddy) relationship of the child with his or her Heavenly Father.
This is constantly found in adult Christian Healing ministry where the human fathering has failed the child, because of poor nurturing and negative affirmation.

BEING A GOOD DADDY TO YOUR CHILD NURTURES HIM FOR HIS HEAVENLY DADDY.   

CHRISTIAN PARENTING INVOLVES BOTH MOTHER AND FATHER, SHARING TOGETHER THE LOVE THEY HAVE TOGETHER IN MARRIAGE ,AND AS CHILDREN OF GOD.

God honours integrity, purity and love and will bless those who set these ideals in parenthood.

Parents living a  Christian family life in line with God's will, and taking advantage of Christian healing,  forms the basis for our teaching on Christian parenthood
