Godly parents make all the difference in the world. We know that you and your spouse are making an immeasurable impact in your children's lives and in the kingdom of God by choosing to homeschool them with a biblical worldview. The end of the year is such a great time to reflect on all the Lord has done and can do for your family. In today's blog post, the Master Books team offers you 5 powerful quotes on modeling the gospel to your children. We trust these quotes will inspire and revive your heart. These nuggets of parenting wisdom are taken from Chapter 10 of John Stamper's book, Conflicted: Pulling Back the Curtain on Public Education.
"Parents, particulary Christian parents who are married are the first model of the gospel that children will learn - even before learning to read, write, or tie their own shoes."
"Being taught to obey their parents, children are prepared to understand that Jesus was always obedient to His heavenly Father."
"Being godly parents actually models the characteristics of God for your children. By having parents that love them, children are prepared to understand that God loves them too."
"Children can observe and understand God's design and salvation model, simply by having parents that live according to God's Word. Once a child reaches the point where they are able to comprehend the gospel, it will make sense to them because they have seen it modeled by their parents their whole life."
"Homeschooling is a way that God can be brought back into the home, back into education, and back into the hearts and minds of children."
"There is an intentional, systematic and devastating war that is being waged on parents and traditional family values in this country."
We trust that these have given you fresh strength to continue parenting and educating your children according to God's Word. At Master Books, we are so honored to partner with you by providing godly homeschool curriculum and resources. Let us know in the comments which of the quotes above resonated with you the most.
