Today’s Truth: Parenting as a Child of God

Knowing Jesus is the best gift we can give our children. It is the best thing we can offer them. Living our lives with God as our Father and guide is the best way to find peace and happiness. Romans 8:14 says, “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.” Think about that for a moment. If you have found God and have been rescued by the blood of Jesus Christ, then you are a child of God! You are a child with a new family. A new life. A new legacy. Galatians 3:26 says that you are a child of God through Jesus Christ. When He died on the cross, He gave us adoption into the family of God. We became heirs with Christ!

This is why His Word says He is a father to the fatherless. He is a hope for the hopeless. Since we are His children and He is our Father, we can trust that He can take care of us and that He knows what is best for us. Just as a good parent makes decisions for their children with their well-being and future in mind, so does God the Father! Except He can see the future and knows what it will bring. This should make us want to teach our children about Him. He is the best one to care for our children, so we should seek Him for advice and wisdom when it comes to parenting. We can parent as a child of God!

Why wouldn’t we want to share the greatest story ever told with our children? Why wouldn’t we want to share the gift we have been given? Take some time today to think about how you can share Christ with your children on a daily basis.
