-Sequel to Waiting Instruction…Boys!

Posted by Scott on October 17, 2007

ggw005s.gifA previous post I have is “Waiting Instruction….Boys!”  I wanted to support the post with the scripture that is was based on and it would not let me inject those into that post, so I am including them in this sequel post for reference. 

Ephesians 6:4 NAS

“Father’s do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”


Psalm 119:29 NLT

“Keep me from lying to myself; give me the privilege of knowing your instructions.”


Psalm 119:34 NLT

“Give me understanding and I will obey your instructions; I will put them into practice with all my heart.”


Over and over throughout God’s word we see God’s instruction to us as dads, moms, parents, husbands, wives, and citizens of our communities. 

Psalm 119:51 NLT

“…I do not turn away from your instructions.”

How do we instruct boys…from the bible.  No matter their level of understanding, trust that the Holy Spirit will take the Word deep into their hearts and plant it there.  Having the kids involved in an AWANA program is great.  They are learning many verses of scripture weekly.  This is planing the Word of God into their hearts and lives.  We as the parents need to help our kids apply that to their daily lives.  Our kids, especially the boys, are looking for direction.  They come up against situations on a daily basis that none of us as dads and moms had to deal with until we were well into our adult years. 

Boys no matter what age want to be strong, courageous, helpful, leaders, and useful.  The scripture is the best way to develop them into the godly man God has planned for them.  So, I encourage anyone raising boys to remember to build them up in a positive but truthful manner that is bible based…that is the only foundation they can really rely upon when times get tough in the future.
