One of the thin people count as a blessing is the opportunity to raise children, whether Christian or not bringing up children is a treasure that is incomparable to anything in this world, however, as a Christian it is more of a blessing to be able to pass the Christian heritage to your child so that they can do the same for their kids. A lot of people especially Christians struggle to raise their kids in a Christian way because of various challenges in the current world most associated with advanced technology where kids can access inappropriate materials and learn behaviors that are against Christian’s way of life.This guide is not a complete list but it highlights some essential things that we believe are important in bringing up your child in a Christian way.
As a Christian parent or guardian it is important to model what Christian should look like, the same way the bible says God is Holy and encourage us to follow His footsteps the same way we should live not only in the eyes of our children but to the rest of the world, people should tell us apart by simply looking at our actions and notice we believe in Jesus Christian, although it is not easy to be perfect because of various temptations of this world our children can learn a lot from us, they will certainly tell we are not perfect but they will realize we are authentic and will emulate our lifestyle.
As a dedicated Christian it is important to learn how to prioritize things in life, God should come first, family second, and then your job, unfortunately, most Christians start the other way around, they struggle to balance work, family, and spiritual lifestyle, you will find that in most cases family suffers because it barely receives the priority it deserves, in this world work will never be done, there will always be a meeting to attend, something to finish, a group to lead so if you do not organize yourself you will abandon your family, the truth is your children will be able to tell if they are a priority or not so be careful with how you prioritize your things.
It is crucial that we teach our kids about the Bible and God, the kids should first learn about God from you, although church plays a key role in teaching children about God and Christianity it is the responsibility of parents to introduce their kids to this way of life, the church is an excellent source of Christian knowledge but it must start from parents or guardian for it to have significant impacts on the children. Those are some ways you can raise your child in a Christian way.
