Relationships - The Next Generation
Exodus 20:12; Ephesians 6:1–4
The fundamental relationship of life is the child to the parents. It is the relationship that they get their first view of God.
“How I treat my parents who I can see is the foundational training for how I treat the Lord whom I can’t see.”
Responsibilities of Children
Obey – ACTION
Why is so hard to obey?
- Curse in them
- Corruption around them
- Culture coming down upon them.
Honor – Attitude
Rewards for Children
Quality – That is may be well with Thee
Quantity – Thou mayest live long on the earth
- Many adults are suffering the consequences of disobedience and dishonor
- Many children are going unprepared into life because no one is making them obey or honor.
- We must have a renewed commitment to raise children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
