Here’s what we’ve been reading as we enter the new year:
Nick Batzig had a post entitled “The Resolved Parent”. In it, he is recommending a family Bible reading plan that will help parent’s be, “... more purposeful about the way in which we foster the spiritual care ...” of his children. If you are a parent and trying to figure out what to do for family devotions, this might be a way to go. Check it out.
Christian Fox had a post on the Gospel Coalition about the idol of parenting success. She wrote, “This idol tells us we must be perfect parents and place our hope in creating perfect children.” This is a trap that is too easy to fall for parents to fall into. Read this so you can see the warning signs.
G’Joe Joseph had a post (via The Gospel Coalition) listing 6 shifts that are going to be required in order to reach the next generation. After listing 6 very important steps to keep in mind he wraps up the post this way, “In a culture that panders to public opinion, may we boldly and winsomely proclaim the bad news that leads us to the greatest news in the history of the world.” This would be very help for both parents and children’s / youth pastors to keep in mind.
