*A #DavidOfurum TEACHING*
THE MAKING OF GODLY SEEDS (CONT’D)
More implications of the making of godly seeds through godly families:
4. Personal and family altars must be deliberate daily platforms for rededication to God (Mk. 1:35): If Jesus, the Godly Seed of the Woman, needed daily quiet time alone with God, then it’s a perfect example for all godly seeds and godly families of all generations. To do otherwise is a declaration of independence from God.
5. Godly parents must consciously guide their children to God (Gal. 4:19): Nothing must be left to chance. Getting children of Christian parents born again must be the deliberate and prayer backed project of their parents.
6. Christian training and discipline must not be lacking in the home (Prov. 22:6, 15): The way every child ought to go to be godly is God’s way and their walking on that path is to be ensured by loving discipline in the home.
7. Caution must be taken in guarding the child against external ungodly influences (Prov. 4:23, 22:25-25): This is a key parental responsibility. Mind the kind of entertainment you allow in your home; they might be sabotaging your efforts at godly upbringing for your children. Also watch the company your kids keep at school and in the neighbourhood.
I pray for you: Your family will not fail God’s expectations in Jesus’ name.
