In this 32 part series on Biblical Counseling Basics, this message is the second of a four part series on Parenthood. This message covers the second phrase in Ephesians 6:4 (... but bring them up ...). It covers such essential parenting principles as discipleship, salvation, grace, and teaching God's Word. It focuses on working on the parent's attitudes (humility, gratitude, a heart that seeks wisdom, rejoicing in trials, and the principles of sinners raising another sinner). It concludes with a charge to parents to acknowledge God's authority and how the "put-off / put-on" principle work with exasperating vs. nourishing your children.
This segment concludes the message with encouragement for parents to be focused, fervent, faithful, and to trust and depend on God for everything through an active prayer life.
