Biblical Duties of Covenant Parents – V

Posted on Aug 31, 2013 by admin Comments Off on Biblical Duties of Covenant Parents – V

Virtues. Remember not only to teach behaviour but Christian virtues. Virtues must be taught early. Teach your children virtues by using and reiterating the Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes, the Fruit of the Spirit, and studying the book of proverbs and such passages as Romans 12. Have your children memorise much of these Biblical instructions. Remember also to teach obedience, honesty, charity, courtesy, loyalty, mercy, attentiveness, humility, meekness, selflessness, patience, contentment, thriftiness, gratitude, orderliness, self-control and discernment.

But remember that virtues cannot be taught simply by memory or explanation. Virtues must be cultivated by constant reminders and godly examples.
