Five principles to guide you to maximize your spiritual influence and your spiritual responsibility to your children. Below are introductory statements to get you thinking about your role as a spiritual leader for you children.
– It all starts with your own love for and relationship with Jesus. The transfer of authentic faith is not evolutionary, born into a child’s DNA, but revolutionary, born out of their experiences with faith through you.
- A spiritual parent must step back to assess the spiritual climate of the household. This needs to be corporately as a family unit, and individually to each child. Listening to your children and asking them specific, open ended questions are a great way to evaluate what God is personally doing in their lives. This opens the door for you to spiritual engage with your kids.
–You are the primary spiritual leader to your kids. Not the church. You set the tone; you are responsible for the spiritual climate in the home. Spiritual parenting does not require you to be a perfect parent. But it does require you to allow God to lead you as you lead your children towards his kingdom.
1 Corinthians 11:1
– We want our kids to be good kids. But goodness is not an outward only issue. It’s a reflection of the heart, a spiritual fruit. A child must understand that faith is not just knowing all the rules, but knowing Jesus first. The solution is not behavior modification, but heart transformation.
– Your voice is crucial to establishing the value and worth of your child. Let it be heard, and drown-out the countless other messages they will receive about who they are or should be. Will you ignore, isolate, or insulate on your child’s behalf?
