Integrity Seeds


By Sandy Holt

 

 

God established the family by bringing a man and a woman together in marriage. Then the children and grandchildren were added.  That is His order.

 

 Just like God has an order in establishing the family, He has an order in parenting our children.  Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”  We hear this scripture quoted a lot especially when a child goes astray from their teaching.  But what this scripture means is, “raise your children from infancy to know and honor God and to have a personal relationship with Him.”

 

 There are lots of ways this can be accomplished but the most effective is to live a Godly life in front of your children.  Be someone you want them to imitate!  Teach your children to develop an awareness of God’s heart, the things He loves and the things that grieve Him.  Teach them integrity.  Even though we live in a world where integrity has been pushed aside, if we plant “integrity seeds” in them, those seeds will take root and grow as our children grow.  We must teach them that doing the right thing may not always be the easiest or most popular, but those right decisions will water those “integrity seeds” making good choices easier.

 

Parenting is, at best, challenging yet one of the most rewarding aspects of living. Take your job as a parent seriously and lean on the Lord for guidance.  He will help you in ALL your parenting decisions.
