How to Raise Godly Children in an Ungodly World – Protect Their Spirits

Protecting your child’s spirit starts in the home. The stronger your children’s home base is, the easier it is for them to feel confident in their own values and beliefs. You’re probably familiar with Proverbs 22:6. This scripture is a basic principle of child development that can be every parent’s best resource. “Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.”

Morning Devotion

Start your day with God’s Word. Find a devotional that is age appropriate for your child, and read it together at breakfast.  Speak positive words over the day and determine to approach every situation in faith.

Night Devotion

Most of us have a ritual of nightly prayers with our children, to thank God for the day and to have a restful night. But consider making this a reflection of the morning’s devotion as well. Review your child’s day with them. Ask them if they encountered any negative situations with friends or teachers, and how they handled it. If they feel it didn’t go well, discuss together a better way to handle those situations in the future.

  1. Hi,

    With the need to wake up early, parents working & attending evening school, children doing extra classes after school and everyone getting home late…

    How can the consistency of devo time be achieved, with “rush” that life nowadays demands of us?

    1. woG it’s much more difficult these days with everybody being so busy, but it’s something we have to be intentional about as we raise families. One couple I know of does their devotions with the kids on their commute to work in traffic. Each morning someone else has a turn to lead and they read the bible and pray together in the car, rather than spending an hour just listening to the news or having everyone with headphones in doing their own thing.
