Be a Faithful Parent | Part I

By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child.

Hebrews 11:23a

Ponder This

It takes a family to raise a child, and it takes faith to make a family. The most powerful and influential people on Earth are mothers and fathers of faith.

Hebrews 11 tells us the story of the Prophet Moses, who was kept alive for the Lord’s service through the faith of his parents, Amram and Jochebed. There are four principles to learn from the indispensable faith of these parents. Today, we are looking at the first two of these principles.

First, we note faith’s vision; Moses’s parents recognized that he was the special handiwork of God. It is our responsibility to see our children as specific, individual creations of God, and raise them accordingly.

Second, we recognize faith’s valor. Amram and Jochebed hid Moses for three months because the King had commanded that baby boys be killed. By faith, they recognized this physical conflict as a spiritual conflict between the gods of Egypt and Almighty God, and “they were not afraid” (Hebrews 11:23b). In these treacherous days, raising children is a spiritual battle, and our only hope is a solid faith in Jesus Christ.

Practice This

Encourage the children in your life today—whether biological or spiritual—by affirming the unique gifts God has given them.
