Parenting Pathway Podcast Volume 2.1 – Pastor Dave Carl leads a discussion about raising children in a modern world.
In part one of our Parenting Pathway Podcast series Raising Children in a Modern World, Family Ministry Pastor Dave Carl has a conversation with Linda Wylie, Ministry Leader of Student Ministries, and Chrissy Smith, Pastoral Leader of Stonebriar Women.
There is a growing trend with young people today, especially those raised in church: they believe they can go out in the world and engage in sin as their hearts desire, and then when they are older and ready to settle down, they will walk away from those activities and God will forgive them for their sins. The world does such a good job marketing a sinful lifestyle, and the church does such a bad job that the choice to follow the world seems very appealing. Modern parenting trends protect our kids from all negative consequences, even the consequences of not following Christ.
In this episode, we will break down this issue and talk about how parents can help paint a picture of God’s love, instilling a desire and motivation to truly follow Him. Is true obedience about following a list of rules, or is it about cultivating a heart that wants to live for Christ? If it is about a change of heart, how can parents encourage children to make wise choices?
Join our conversation about raising our kids to love Christ and live for Him.
