Godly parenting is extremely important, especially when raising our children in today’s society. When I was little, my grandmother was the mama of all mama’s. That’s why we called her “Big Mama.” She was so great at raising her children and grandchildren, and I wish that she was still living to help put my own children in check! But Big Mama was a strong woman that everyone admired. She was a godly woman who kept her family in line. She ensured that even her grandchildren went to church, and that we always mind our manner. Saying our blessings before eating was essential as well. She was the foundation of our family, and taught our young men how to be respectful, educated, and polite. She taught them to open the car door for the ladies, and to treat women with respect. Likewise, with the ladies, she taught us to treat our bodies as the Temple of God; how to respect ourselves by sitting appropriately when wearing a dress; how to cook homemade meals; and hot to speak well to others at all times.
When I look around today, I see so many children being disrespectful: talking back, cursing, talking over adults. But to be honest, they are not the ones to fully blame. The reason why I’m saying this is because of the behavior that I see from adults in this new age. I’ve witnessed so many parents being a friend to their children instead of being their parent. These parents allow their children to curse around them, to dress inappropriately, to sing explicit songs, and much more. These parents become hostile with teachers whenever the child is suspended, which the teacher does as a result of the student’s behavior. I’m not trying to attack anyone’s parenting method, but I am showing examples of what will happen when we do not allow God to show us how to be godly parents to our children. Children need values in life to grow into successful adults. They need God in their lives.
I’m not a perfect parent, myself. I often make mistakes and I learn something new each day. That’s why I and other parents must continue to pray, to ask the Lord to show us the right way to handle our children, especially when they are teenagers. We must do like it reads in Deuteronomy 6:2: “That thou mightiest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the day of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.”
The good news for us parents is that we can start right away in training up children in the way they should go. We can accomplish this by observing our children and enforcing rules. We must stay in prayer concerning them, applying the Blood of Jesus over them.
So, stay prayed up!
