CHILDREN AND PARENTING Rev. Dr. Chris Oyakhilome DSc, DD.

That attitude of giving child a tablet while service is on to be playing games so they don’t disturb you is a time bomb! You are saying to them, its OK to not concentrate in church, you think you are trying to concentrate and don’t want them to distract you but you are giving them a mindset. It will form an attitude towards trivializing spiritual things in the future and by then it may be too late to correct..

Don’t ever think they do not understand what’s going on while the service is on, these children play very complicated games better than adults! If they can understand that, they can understand what Paul calls ”The Simplicity of the Gospel” The gaming can wait!

Another thing I find ludicrous is Parents who give their children ”loose change” for offering but spend heavily on their lunch just after the service is over.. There again you are saying, God doesn’t deserve anything big. You see that’s how you breed Atheists! That’s how you raise Adults who think the Holy Ghost is a Gut Feeling! Who think tithing is making the pastor a big boy!

Train up a child in the way he should go.. When he is old he will not depart from it I may never be able to subscribe to all the parenting modules my Parents used for us while growing up, but you see this love for God? They got it right!

My Father made sure we never missed a single midweek service while growing up. No matter how tired we were from school, he insisted, he compelled! Today, look what that training has done to me!

Isaiah 28 vs 10 says ”For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little” Simple things are what form Character! God bless you.
