EXEMPLARY CHILDREN IN THE BIBLE : BIBLICAL GUIDELINES FOR RAISING CHILDREN

*****************************************************************************************

1. JESUS

The Lord Jesus was an exemplary child. He grew in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man. He was well versed in the Scriptures. Even as a child at the age of twelve , He could discuss spiritual truths with the religious scholars . Jesus is an example for our children. We should also bring up our children in the ways of the Lord and teach them the scriptures at an early age. We should be greatly concerned about their spiritual growth and their relationship with the Lord and get them involved in activities that would enable them to grow in the Lord .

LUKE 2: 40-52

And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him.

Every year Jesus’ parents went to Jerusalem for the Festival of the Passover.

When he was twelve years old, they went up to the festival, according to the custom.

After the festival was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it.

Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends.

When they did not find him, they went back to Jerusalem to look for him.

After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.

Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers.

When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, "Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you."

"Why were you searching for me?" he asked. "Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?"

But they did not understand what he was saying to them.

Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart.

And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

2. SAMUEL

Samuel was an exemplary child. Even as a child he was ministering before the Lord . He grew up in the presence of the Lord and grew in stature and in favour with the Lord and with people. As a result , at a time when the word of the Lord was rare , The Lord spoke to the child Samuel . The Lord did not choose to speak to the older priests but rather chose to speak to a child who was serving him faithfully. The Lord chose Samuel to become a great prophet to the people of Israel. When we raise up our children to serve the Lord even at a young age , they can also experience hearing the voice of the Lord and be a great blessing to others .
