Establish the need: What is your greatest priority for your kids? What do you desire the most for your kids?  Is it for them to have a good job, take care of you when you are older, contribute to society or be independent?  These are not wrong in of themselves, but what should your greatest priority for your kids should be?

Purpose: Today we will see seven reasons why we should set the priority of desiring our children’s’ salvation in how we parent our children.

  1. Hell is a real place for sinners (Matthew 10:28, Matthew 13:50)

  3. All parents should desire what’s best for their kids (Matthew 7:11; Proverbs 13:22)
  4. Jesus does not want us to hinder children coming to Him (Matthew 19:14)
  5. Stumbling little kids is a serious penalty (Matthew 18:6)
  6. It is so important believers are called to continue to be married to unbelievers for the sake of children’s salvation (1 Corinthians 7:12-14)
  7. God wants kids to even silence the mockers (Psalm 8:2, Matthew 21:15-16)
