#5 of 12 Things 


Point the Finger

We love our kids and we want to do everything we can for them.  The reality is we won’t always be there for them.

Pointing them to Scripture when the opportunity presents itself will help them learn to lean on the One who will be. If your child is struggling with self worth, you could share Ephesians 1:5, “God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ.  This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” If they’re dealing with injustice you could share how David dealt with injustice from Saul (1 Samuel 19-24) If your child feels they’re too young to do anything important, you can share how God used King Josiah to bring reformation to the Israelite nation or share 1Timothy 4:12, “Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young.  Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” If your child isn’t sure what to do with their future, you can assure them of God’s faithfulness and His plans for their life.  Sharing verses like Jeremiah 29:11, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’” will be an encouragement to them. There is no end to the number of situations the Bible can help us with. Pointing your kids to Scripture in meaningful ways will:
  1. Show them that the Bible is relevant to their lives
  2. Encourage them to read the Bible
  3. Help them see they can always turn to God

Is there anything more important you could teach them?  Is there anyone more capable?
