Biblical Messages

The priority of every parent

So we’re starting a series on parenting at St. Paul’s, and this message kicks it off.  Parents are always seeking to help their kids to be less dependent on them, but to what end?  We often think we should help our kids become independent, but that only works to a certain point.  Ideally, we want our kids to be fully dependent on God.  That’s the priority of every parent.

This message is based on Deuteronomy 6.1-9, and you can listen to the message by clicking here.  (Just before I began talking, there was a short video demonstrating the need for help with parenting!)

So what works for you, as you seek to help your kids become less dependent on you and more dependent on God?  I’d love to read your comments.
