Rick Phillips on Discipling Christian Children August 14, 2008

Posted by heldveld in Antithesis, Blog Spotting, Christian Parenting, Richard Phillips.

It seems like I’m doing an awful lot of ‘blog spotting’ but then again I openly admit that I’m still learning and there’s so much good stuff being written by others.

Rick Phillips posts an article at the Reformation 21 blog on ‘Discipling Christian Children’. He starts with an excellent quote show casing how the Biblical world view is antithetical to the secular (this blog is titled Reformed Antithesis after all)

We live in a society that assumes that when children grow up they will jettison the family’s beliefs and values. But the Bible sees things differently. The book of Proverbs says that the childhood years have a formative influence that lasts throughout life: “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22:6).

As a parent of two young children I appreciate any help I can get from a Biblical perspective. He lays out four actions for parents.

  1. Read God’s Word with your children
  2. Pray for and with your children
  3. Work with your children
  4. Play with your children
