As a follower of Christ, if I am more concerned about the grades my child makes more than I am concerned about their spiritual condition then I have bought into culture’s definition of success.

 Deuteronomy 6:1-9

 The Priority of Parenting . . .

 As a parent, I am the primary nurturer and disiciple-maker of my children.

·         No one else is charged with as great a calling or responsibility when it comes to my children. (Ephesians 6:4)

“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”  Ephesians 6:4

o   How am I doing?  What would be the grade on my report card or progress report?

The crux of the matter . . .

I cannot lead my child where I am not going.

·         I’m going somewhere, but am I pursuing Christ?

·         My children will followwho or what I follow.


As pastor and leadership, we are called to equip you for the work of ministry.

·         The greatest ministry I have, as a parent, is to my children

·         As a parent, it is imperative that I do whatever I must to be properly equipped.
