As parents, we have the honor of guiding the spiritual development of our children. This is such a gift! One essential aspect of nurturing their faith is introducing them to the concept of a good God, which can lay the foundation for how they perceive God for the rest of their lives.
It opens the way for them to explore questions of faith, develop a personal relationship with the Lord, and deepen their understanding of who He is.
The Word tells us, “God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” (1 John 4:16 NIVTM)
Children thrive when they feel safe and loved, and when they face difficult circumstances, the knowledge that a good God cares for them provides them with solace and reassurance. It teaches them to turn to God for strength, comfort, and guidance.
Leading Our Children
Worship is such a powerful way for kids to connect with the Lord. Sometimes as parents, we feel like we need to facilitate the Holy Spirit to work in their lives, but let’s remember that He doesn’t need us to. We are responsible for shepherding our children, and He will do the rest.
An amazing resource for worship is “Good God” a beautiful new album from Shout Praises Kids that gives young listeners a chance to hear themselves as worshippers and engage in songs of truth. It offers a diverse range of songs that explore God’s holiness, strength, and worthiness.
Worship can be a shared experience where parents, siblings, and children can come together to lift their voices in adoration.
Let’s teach our children about the Good God that we serve as we inspire them to have lifelong journey of worship with a God who they know loves and cares for them.
