10 Suggestions for Raising Godly Children

Here's a snippet of a great post on Ron Edmonson's blog on how to raise godly kids: Most of the believers I know have a strong desire to raise their children to be godly; to be passionate followers of Christ. With two boys, I know the difficulty in completing that task. Years ago, before I even had children, God laid on my heart to develop a plan for my fathering. Though at the time I didn’t put this on paper, over the years I have begun to write it down in an effort to encourage other parents to have a plan for their parenting in the area of spiritual development. This is an outline of my specific plan for spiritual development of a child. You will need to alter your plan to fit your own goals, life situations, and the individualities of your children. Here are 10 suggestions for raising godly children: Realize that raising godly children does not usually happen by accident. It will require proper planning and implementation. Know what you want your child to look like as adults. Ultimately I want my boys to be like Christ, so He became the primary model I used. Define what it means to be a Christ follower.
