Foundations of Godly Parenting - Perspective
Hello, and welcome to week one of our Foundations of Godly Parenting Teaching Series. We're so excited to have this opportunity to learn and grow together. Here in the North Ministry of the O.C. Church of Christ. We have five core values, which we call the Fab Five and that's Discipleship, Family, Evangelism, Service, and Fun. And as a church we value building the family of God and also building godly families. And that's why we're taking this time to focus in on building godly families in our homes. And so we are excited to learn together, to grow together and to discuss together the foundations of having godly parenting. We believe that this would be a great month of learning and growing together. Again, we have a parenting packet that we call the Foundations of Godly Parenting. And so we're using that title. And if you want to go ahead and get a digital copy of that, please reach out to us so we can send that to you. Now, let me also say this as we go through these next several weeks, that there are only four classes. There is no way that we can go ahead and touch on every aspect of parenting in exhaustive detail for every stage. That's just not possible. So we will hit on some foundational pieces. And so what we will be talking about here is perspective, principles and practices for the next several weeks. And today we're going to be talking about perspective and again, we will discuss these practices and these principles that apply to all stages. However, they do look differently in, different stages. So what you do with the fifth five-year-old, you will still do, but not in the same fashion with the 15 year old. And so we will have other class and teaching series uh, every year. So we will be able to hopefully hit on every topic that is of benefit to me and you. So let's start off with talking about perspective and the thing that we must understand that perspective is key. You know, how you view things will affect and drive your behavior. Will affect your views and attitudes about it. Again, if I come into my marriage thinking, Oh no, this is going to be rough. That will affect me and my feelings when I have an argument or disagreement with my wife, Karina, and it will affect my behavior as well. But if I have a perspective that you know what God is using this circumstance for something good, that would change the way I feel about it. And will produce some different behavior. And so our perspective is key and Jesus modeled this for us. Let's look at Hebrews chapter 12, verses one and two.  Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith for the joy set before him, he endured the cross scorning its shame and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Here we see our Lord Jesus. And it says here that for the joy set before him. So his perspective was bigger than the moment in his perspective about the cross enabled him to endure. The crucifixion enabled him to endure the ridicule and everything , that came with this horrible tragic event. And so again, we see here, Jesus modeling for us here, perspective and how it can influence and alter. And most of all enable us to have great responses and results and our choices and behavior. And so we watch, we must remember that our perspective then about parenting. It could be how we view our role, how we view situations will be paramount in our decisions, our behaviors, and our feelings and throughout the whole experience of parenting. And so let's talk about the. Main perspective that we want to share with you today. And we will give credit to Gary Thomas who wrote a book called sacred parenting. And so a lot of the things were prompted by the book in sacred parenting. So here we go, the perspective that is vital for you and Support this podcast
