Both Need To Be Involved

Ephesians 6:1-4

Next to our relationship with God, it’s our relationship with our parents that has had or will have the biggest influence on us. There are two elements of the Parent-Child Relationship: 1) What should children give their parents?  Honor.  We discover that honor is a moral choice. When we honor our parents, we avoid two errors: A) We avoid a complete lack of obedience. B) We avoid obedience without respect. 2) What should parents give their children? Training and instruction.  All training without instruction leads to over-discipline.  No training with all instruction leads to under-discipline.  For God, both mother and father are involved in training and instructing children. This is just one reason why keeping both parents involved in the parenting process is so important. That is tough in today’s society due to the divorce rate but we need to stay involved with our children lives. Our children deserve it and God expects it.  God Loves Ya 😉
