KINGD OM KIDS What Do Kids Really Need From Us? (A children’s pastor’s perspec2ve) !
Our kids Need to know the Gospel of Jesus above all else; Need to know that we love the Word of God as the central guide in our lives; Need to know what it means to live a Spirit led life by seeing us live Spirit led lives. Our kids Need to see us loving God with all of our hearts, souls & minds, in spite of our imperfect lives; Need to see our love for God in action through our love for others; Need to see God’s love for them in the way we show our love for them. Our kids Need to experience true worship by seeing us live lives of true worship; Need to experience true forgiveness so that they can learn to forgive; Need to experience true service by serving alongside those who will teach them to serve. Our kids Need to be taught the facts of God’s Word as a basis for learning the principles of God’s Word; Need to be taught the principles of God’s Word so that they can live in a world without principles; Need to be taught how to live without compromise in a world full of compromise. Our kids Need us to stop being distracted . Need us to stop making excuses . Need us to stop talking the talk without walking the walk Our kids need us to make a radical commitment to live radical lives because we serve a radical God who loves us with a radical love. Our kids need us to live with the conviction that what we say we believe we actually believe, that who we say we are is who we actually are, and that our love for God and our love for others supercedes all other loves. Our kids need us to see a real, authentic, uncompromising and fully committed faith. For it is in seeing this faith that they will see it’s power, and in seeing it’s power they will claim it for their own. And it’s in claiming a powerful faith in Jesus… that our kids will have what they really need.
Parenting Insight You Can Use Now Children need to know what Godly character looks like in practical terms. We love the character quality of honor, not just because God commands it, but also because it has so much rich meaning for parents and children. It can give direction in many of the frustrating moments we experience in family life. In fact, every form of selfishness has an honor-based solution. Honor means… Treating people as special, Doing more than what's expected, And having a good attitude. Use our honor definition or make up your own. The point is that honor changes people. It changes the way that parents relate to their children, the way children relate to each other, and the way children relate to their parents. We all need it. You can use the concept of honor in correction or when things are going well. You can use it when you teach your children about money, time, and other resources, and you can teach it when conflict comes around. One fun way to teach it is on special occasions when someone wins a contest or earns a certificate. You may show honor by giving that person a fancy place at the table or by decorating his or her bedroom door. Honor is fun. It's like oil in a machine. It gets work done with less friction and less heat. Every family needs honor. It's great when things are going well and essential when family relationships are strained. You can work on honor whether your kids are preschoolers or teens. It will change the way your family relates.
