The living, the living—they praise you, as I am doing today; parents tell their children about your faithfulness.
Parenting has large spiritual implications. “There are few parents who realize how important it is to give to their children the influence of a godly example. Yet this is far more potent that precept. No other means is so effective in training them to right lines. When parents awaken to a true understanding of their neglected duties, the will marvel at the spiritual blindness that has characterized their past experience. Children require daily spiritual attention. For one thing, their lives are changing too rapidly for mere once-a-week guidance. Each day foundation elements of the character are being formed.”
What is Pure Parenting?
Pure Reality is committed to being in partnership with parents, helping to empower and strengthen their understanding of “The Theology of Parenting.” There is a cliché that states, “Parenting doesn’t come with a handbook,” we at Pure Reality beg to differ, the gift of prayer is the navigator which leads to clear instructions and diverse examples (the good, the bad and the ugly) of parenting from the Word of God applicable to any childrearing situation or dilemma. The Christian life is one of constant warfare and it is our duty as parents, to shield and navigate our children away from contaminating influences, instruct our children in the principles of purity and most importantly, help our children to procure a positive God concept.
Pure parenting keeps a sense of humor. As we pray for and guide our children, we keep in mind that sometimes our own stubbornness causes us as parents ,not to do the will of our Father in heaven as fast as we should but we are ever mindful He is ready, willing and able to forgive and cast our “sins into the depths of the sea.”
Pure Parenting is courageous, focuses on character growth, models Jesus always keeping in mind that love for God can’t be forced but led.
How we can help?
Pure Reality encourages parents to remember that God gave them the greatest power of influence through the Holy Spirit to train, support and model the principles that help their children to resist daily temptations. To counter the current culture purity must be inculcated so that heaven will be a place where children want to go to be with a Savior they love and revere.
