Do you care about your child’s spiritual development? Of course you do! The single most important part of parenthood is the task of spiritually discipling your child. Every Christian parent wants their child to have a relationship with Jesus. But what’s more, is what your child does with that relationship. As a parent, how are you cultivating ground for your child’s spiritual growth?
Now that summer break is in full swing, you might have some extra time to spend with your children. Use this for a Gospel advantage! Model for your child how to share the Gospel in everyday situations. If they see you living out your faith, they will want to live out theirs as well!
You may be thinking that in this day and age, your influence as a parent doesn’t matter as much as their peers or educators, but it does!
Barna Research says that a spiritually vibrant household is intentional to have meaningful, fun and quality time together as a family.
In fact, if you’re actively engaging with your children, they will be drawn to whatever it is you are. If you’ll be passionate about the Gospel, your child is more likely to love it as well!
If you’re not sure how to disciple your child beyond church on Sunday, we have resources for you available at ShareLife dot Today to help you get your church involved with Hope for Kids – a program designed to teach children how to effectively share their faith!
This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. Visit ShareLife.Today for a free Hope for Kids Gospel tract.
May God richly bless you this week as you teach your child the importance of growing in their faith!
