2 Parenting Teens Week 2

3 Where we are heading: the Word as it relates to our role as parents. the Word as it relates to the father parenting a teen. the Word as it relates to the mother parenting a teen. How does God “parent” us? How did Jesus “parent” (mentor) his disciples? Other questions: o What if mom and dad are split? o How do we make our kids go to church/group? o Others???

4 Other questions – so far… What if mom and dad are split? How do we make our kids go to church/group? What is the “other shoe dropping” when you have compliant children? What do we do with the prodigal? What do we do if our teens are not believers?

5 Other comments, so far… God wants our hearts! His Grace is mighty! We have the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit which enables us to parent our children!

6 From last time: We have the ultimate responsibility for training our teens. (Deuteronomy 6). Our teens should know the story of our salvation. (Deuteronomy 11). We are being watched by our teens. Love never fails. (1 st Corinthians 13)

7 If I speak in the tongues [a] of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, [b] but have not love, I gain nothing.ab 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. 1 st Corinthians 13 – also from last time… Paul challenges believers that this is what we are to be pursuing, as we relate to other believers – INCLUDING OUR TEENS!

8 The Word as it relates to the father parenting a teen.

10 A word about the Word: Gods word is true across time Gods word is true across culture Gods word is true across economic class If God’s word is taught correctly, it will be applicable to all people, at all times across all demographics, across all economic dividers… I will stand before God for how I bring you the Word.

He who loves his wife loves himself.b Ephesians 5

21 3 Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. 2 Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full [a] respect.a 5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) 1 Timothy 3:

23 Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. 3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. Ephesians 5
