PARENTS: YOUR LIVES, YOUR ATTITUDE, YOUR CHILDREN

Your children can never show any better thing than what you are consciously or unconsciously displaying to them at home through you actions and inactions. Children are fast learners and they learn best from their parents that is why it is good you mind what you do in their presence because it speaks volume.
“Children are a reflection of their parents. Good children are products of good homes. On the other hand, good homes are a product of great values”. Those are words of Pastor E. A. Adeboye, and those words speak of great responsibilities lying at the doorstep of every parent. These days, children see things that their parents do in secrecy. You might think they don’t know but wait until you see them do exactly what you are doing. It then means that the attitude of your children at home and outside is a reflection of you the parents. O! You say your children disobey you but ehn! … You also disobey God! You think they don’t know? From different indices, raising children in a godly way requires a concerted effort from the parents (both the father and mother). It is not just teaching these great values but in doing them. For instance, if you love your neighbours and now teach your children to do so, it will be easy for them because they have seen you doing it. If not, you will just be wasting your effort when you don’t do what you teach them. Acts 1:1.
Parents, practise these great values and teach your children, then, you will see them become great in life and our country will be better.
Building a godly home is a function of these great values adopted as scriptural principles and must govern every home.
*CHASTITY- keeping away from sexual immorality
*HARWORK- working to excel legitimately
*RESPECT- for elders and seniors
OBEDIENCE- to authorities at home, school and communities.
*CONTENTMENT- being satisfied with what is available
*CLEANLINESS- to avoid dirtiness
*HANDLING DOMESTIC CHORES
*BROTHERLINESS/NEIGHBOURLINESS/GOOD HUMAN RELATIONS
*MERIT & ORDER
*TIME MANAGEMENT
*RIGHTS, PRIVILEGES & LIMITATIONS
*TRUTHFULNESS
*ETIQUETTE
*POLITENESS
*PRAYERFULNESS
The questions is, do you practise all of these as parents?
Build children with great values for a great nation because any great country is not just great on its own but a replica of a group of people from different homes that have been trained with different values.
