The most important thing for parents

Saturday, December 6, 2014, 2:47 pm | Randy Thomasson


Every parent wants to think of themselves as a “good parent.”

But “good” is a result, not merely an intention. Because, most of the time, virtuous adults come from good parents who do good training of their children’s minds and bodies, and good ministry to their children’s hearts and souls. This is where great-character adults come from!

And think about this — we’re all going to die. Then the only people alive will be the children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren of those who are gone. Ask yourself, “What kind of adults are we shaping in our children?” What we do and say here answers the other question, “What kind of world will we leave our children?”

For the principled parent, all this means purposefully, lovingly, courageously, and consistently training your child’s character. It means having the goal of building a better adult that you are. Because this is the key way to make society better. Think about that!

To help parents to prioritize shaping their children’s character, SaveCalifornia.com has put together these top picks for humble dads and moms.

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6 NKJV
