God's Design For The Family

From Series: Parental Priorities

Deuteronomy 5:16  (ID: 1621)

The strongest society is one in which families are held together under the authority of the Scripture. The Bible provides parents with direction on how they can teach their children in a way that does not embitter them, but rather prompts genuine love and obedience. Alistair Begg reminds parents that their primary objective should be turning their children’s hearts toward Christ, which in turn creates the foundation for outward change.
