Nehemiah 4:14 And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses. [15] And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that it was known unto us, and God had brought their counsel to nought, that we returned all of us to the wall, every one unto his work.

Deuteronomy 6:5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. [6] And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: [7] And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. [8] And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. [9] And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

As a parent, you are the spiritual “umbrella” over your children. If you allow failure in your moral life, you will open a leak in your protection through which Satan can bring destructive temptations to your children.

1. DEDICATE YOURSELF TO THE LORD.

Joshua 24:15 Choose you this day whom ye will serve;…but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

2. DEDICATE EACH CHILD TO THE LORD.

Psalms 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

By doing this you acknowledge the true ownership of your child is God.

By doing this you acknowledge your stewardship before Him.

3. LEAD YOUR CHILD TO RECEIVE CHRIST AS SAVIOUR.

Luke 18:16 Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Never take the salvation of your children for granted.

Make sure that each child personally accepts Christ as their own Saviour.

4. TEACH YOUR CHILD THE MEANING OF “THE FEAR OF THE LORD.”

Proverbs 16:6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.

The Fear of the Lord is,.. the continual awareness that I am in the presence of a Holy, Righteous, and Just God; and the every thought, word, action, and deed is open before Him and is being judged by Him.

5. TEACH YOUR CHILD HOW TO RECOGNIZE & RESIST EVIL.

James 4:6-10 God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. [7] Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. [8] Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you… [10] Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

6. TEACH YOUR CHILD ABOUT DANGEROUS ASSOCIATIONS.

2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteous-ness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

7. TEACH YOUR CHILD TO RESPECT AND HONOR AUTHORITY.

1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
