Family Matters | Part 5 | Parenting

Nothing illustrates our relationship with God more clearly than the parent/child relationship. Like marriage, parenting is a picture of God's relationship with us. Unlike the view of many in our culture, scripture indicates that children are a blessing from the Lord and Jesus tells us that they should be treated as such. However, parenting is a weighty responsibility and it can be very difficult. What exactly is our responsibility as parents? What is the ultimate goal of parenting and how do we raise our kids the right way? The good news is we're not alone and scripture gives us some answers for the journey.
