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.
Teenagers (and children of all ages) have questions that today's adults did not experience in the past. Facing a crisis of understanding who they are, children are crying out for someone to say "stop" and put up parameters. Gather your children and join us for teaching on the instruction and incentive every teenager needs.
A child's favorite Bible verse may be "Fathers do not embitter your children". The task of a father in raising a child can be difficult. How can a father keep his children from becoming frustrated, feeling unwanted and becoming embittered? Join us as Pastor Begg provides thought provoking insight regarding the key to turning discouragement into encouragement.
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.
A distinct sign of a crumbling society is that children no longer obey their parents. It is now often perceived as anti-cultural and, even “old-fashioned,” to believe that parents have authority over their children. When children are captured by the love and lordship of Christ, they will be more inclined to obey their parents in a heartfelt and sincere way. They will be markedly different from others around them, bringing testimony to the wonder of God’s amazing grace.
