The immense privilege of raising children is accompanied by peculiar challenges which require great wisdom. Alistair Begg teaches us that the Bible provides all the necessary guidelines for training and disciplining, and explains why correct theology is critical in the process.
6Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Wouldn’t it be great if children came with an instruction guide? Alistair Begg teaches us that, in fact, they do! The Bible is the ultimate source for instruction and contains everything we need to know about raising children. Navigating the challenges of parenting is particularly difficult in today’s culture, which is confused about the role of mothers and fathers and the unique benefits they each bring to the family unit. Wise parenting begins with the realization that we are all born in sin; when this doctrine is properly understood, it will have practical implications on how we discipline and train our children. Mothers should embrace their irreplaceable role, and fathers are to lead their families under the framework of Biblical truth. Believing parents can be encouraged by God’s promise: “Train them up in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it.”
