Summary of this study
Children are part of God’s plan – yet they are a gift, not a right. For those blessed with them, and those who know those who are, it is critically important we do all we can to raise them well, training them how they should go, teaching them the ways of the Lord, setting a good example and demonstrating the fruit of the Spirit. We are also to discipline them, care for them, protect them, and not provoke them. In this study we look at the Biblical foundations for these things and more.
Series overview: The big areas of our lives
During this series we’ll take a look at 11 topics – one each week – that affect us, our families, our friends, and our church family. We’ll be looking at what the Bible has to say about Education, Career, Finances, Time, Friendships, Singleness & relationships, Marriage, Children, Health & illness, Death, and Church.
Why look at these topics? Well, God has given us everything we need for every area of our lives, so that we know how we should live and conduct ourselves in these areas, our foundation for this series being the first 4 verses of 2 Peter chapter one…
Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.2 Peter 1:1-4
