The reality is that everywhere we go these days, evil is all around us—in countless forms—and our society has moved so far from God that most of our great-grandparents would be hard-pressed to even recognize it.
Families and traditional family values are increasingly under attack, gun violence and hate-filled protests have become the norm rather than the exception, the education system is rife with progressive and humanistic ideology and expression, and government at every level has never been more corrupt or farther from God.
With front row seats to this moral decay are our children—the ones whom the Lord entrusted to us and charged us with teaching the difference between right and wrong based on God’s Word alone. As our children are being exposed to worldly ways of thinking and living that we as their parents likely didn’t have to contend with at such a young age, it’s our job to ensure they don’t become deceived by the darkness.
Here are three ways to equip your children to stand firm for Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit as they navigate this godless culture.
- Have Bible-based discussion about hot-button issues.
- Make church attendance a major priority.
- Pray not just for them but over them.
