When Children Arrive: A Household of Harmony or Chaos?

This past weekend we received 4 Gems from Genesis 4 that parents can pass onto their children to help them live in God’s story.

2 Corinthians 5:17.
Think differently about your parenting. Invite God into the raising of your child.

Genesis 4:1-2.
Teach your children that the purpose of work is to care for the earth. And they will need to discover how they will contribute their part.

Genesis 4:3-4.
Teach your children that God deserves to be valued and worshipped because He is the Author of life and Lord of all.

Genesis 4:6-7.
Come alongside your child to help him or her rule their emotions. So their emotions won’t rule over them.

Genesis 4:8-10.
Help your child learn to celebrate the success of another person (sibling or a peer).
