Three Reminders for the Next Generation

Parents want the best for their children.  Would you be willing to give the best to your children even if it included getting intentional and personal? Psalm 78:1-8 teaches that each generation needs to be reminded of 3 things: The Faithfulness of God The Frailties of the Past The Focus of the Future The Faithfulness of God The next generation needs to know who God is. The next generation needs to know what God has done. While we are faithless,…

Discipleship Strategy for Your Family

Within the family contains one of the greatest opportunities for discipleship and one of the greatest challenges for consistency. Your family members provide you the greatest opportunity to encourage and to discourage spiritual growth. When Jesus isn’t the centerpiece of the home, every inch of it is out of place. Let’s study Eph. 5:22-6:4 to see what Jesus at the center of the home looks like. All order in the family and submission among relationships all have one common head…

God’s Plan for Your Family

God’s plan for your family is not complex.  We make it that way, but it is truly simple.  This is the plan: God wants to reconcile the world to Himself through Christ-following parents who disciple their own children to multiply gospel transformation to all people.      In Gen. 12:1-3, we hear God’s plan for Abram. God blesses Abram in order that he would be a blessing to all people.  Blessed to be a blessing.  He actually said that all…

Parenting Post #6

A Post by Shawn Piedrahita (NGU Student) Principle: You need to parent with a Process Mentality      When does parenting finish? Has a parent completed their God-given duty when their child graduates high school, college, or gets married? According to Paul David Tripp, a parent’s job is never finished. In fact, He labels this as having a Process Mentality. In his book on Parenting, Tripp defines parenting as “unfinished people being used by God as agents of transformation in the…

Love Your Neighbor

Jesus told us in Mark 12 that we should “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength (and) ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”  That is easy to say, but not always seemingly easy to do.  Sometimes we really just want to pull into the garage, close the door, go inside and shut out the world.  But when we sit down and read God’s Word, we are constantly…

Graduate Milestones

It is graduation time! It’s a time to honor, celebrate, and reflect on your child’s successes. It is your child’s time to shine. They have completed a milestone for sure. They have worked hard, made grades, finished projects, played on multiple sports teams, served on academic clubs, been a part of school activities, and have made a ton of memories and experiences. Many of those experiences have taught them lessons, many they cherish and some they wish not to repeat.…

May Parenting Principle #5

Principle: If you are not resting as a parent in your identity in Christ, you will look for identity in your children.  Sometimes we may not think about it, but as Paul Tripp says, we “do it every single day.”  He further says, “Your parenting is always shaped by where you look for identity.” Our parenting will reveal where we find our identity. This post will highlight some of the struggles that we as parents go through as we seek…
