The most important thing our kids need in order to have self-worth in life is a relationship with God Almighty.
As parents, one way we can help develop that relationship is by telling them stories from the Bible.
Psalm 78:5-7 (NLT) says, “He commanded our ancestors to teach them to their children, so the next generation might know them—even the children not yet born—and they in turn will teach their own children. So each generation should set its hope anew on God, not forgetting his glorious miracles and obeying his commands.”
In the Bible, we read over and over where parents are commanded to tell their children the stories of God’s Word. That’s how we start to build our children’s self-worth.
These stories were recorded as examples for us, and they fill us with hope—stories like Adam and Eve messing up in the Garden but God providing a way of redemption, Abraham and Sarah having a miracle childbirth, David defeating Goliath, and Jesus healing all kinds of diseased people.
All of these accounts show us God’s patience, generosity, mercy, love, and forgiveness. They give us hope and faith that no matter what happens, God will be with us and help us through every challenge in life. Our kids need to know God will always be there for them.
Don’t worry about your ability to parent. Here’s what God says…
