Sermons on Parenting

Parenting can be difficult and many hope to find a handbook to help them through challenging times. In these sermons, Alistair Begg encourages us to look to the Bible for instruction on the roles of fathers and mothers.

Today’s culture worships youth but disregards authority. Alistair Begg challenges us to consider that when the Fifth Commandment requires us to honor our parents, it establishes a principle that is at the foundation of society. Honoring our parents reflects the degree to which we honor God. As this principle is worked out in practical ways, it has the potential to transform our society for the glory of God.

Paul instructed fathers not to provoke their children to anger, assuming parental authority, but appealing for its restraint. Reminding us that children ultimately belong God, Alistair Begg warns parents of certain pitfalls that are likely to exasperate their children and incite responses of bitterness and resentment. The responsibility of biblical parenting is impossible apart from the grace and wisdom of God the Father, who provides the ultimate example in the love and grace He demonstrates toward His children.

Looking back on our lives, we quickly recall the tremendous impact of our mothers on us and our homes. Our culture is confused about the great privilege and task of making a home; the investment a mother makes in the lives of her children is invaluable. Alistair Begg presents a biblical perspective, defining the priorities and purpose of mothers who are wholly devoted to God.

One distinct sign of a crumbling society is that children no longer obey their parents. Today, many perceive the notion that parents have authority over their children as anti-cultural or “old-fashioned.” In this message, Alistair Begg challenges this belief, reminding children that sincere obedience comes more easily when they are captured by the love of Jesus Christ. By honoring and respecting their parents, children testify to the wonder of God’s amazing grace.
