Biblical Duties of Covenant Parents – S

Posted on May 31, 2013 by admin
Sabbath. The Sabbath is a time appointed by our Lord for rest and spiritual worship. It is your duty as parents to ensure that your children keep the Sabbath holy (Ex 20:10). Therefore ensure that your children sleep early on Saturdays. Then when the Sabbath comes around, remind them that it is the Sabbath. Remind them that the Sabbath is a holy day of the Lord which is reserved for worship, and not for play and recreation. Remind them of how they are to behave when they go to church, such as not running around. And remember not to leave them to fend for themselves on the Sabbath. As much as possible when resting at home, lead them in the singing of psalms, reading of the Bible and good Christian books, or learning of the catechism. Help them to delight in the Sabbath rather than hate it.
