SPF 216: The Vultures Want Your Kids – Faithfulness in Training Up Our Children

Proverbs 30:17 says, “The eye that mocks a father and scorns to obey a mother will be picked out by the ravens of the valley and eaten by the vultures.” Today I’m sharing the importance of being faithful in training up our children with their souls and eyes, in mind.

The Duties of Parents (FREE eBook) J.C.Ryle | Monergism: https://www.monergism.com/duties-parents-ebook

I know that you cannot convert your child. I know well that they who are born again are born, not of the will of man, but of God. But I know also that God says expressly, “Train up a child in the way he should go,” and that He never laid a command on man which He would not give man grace to perform. And I know, too, that our duty is not to stand still and dispute, but to go forward and obey. It is just in the going forward that God will meet us. The path of obedience is the way in which He gives the blessing. We have only to do as the servants were commanded at the marriage feast in Cana, to fill the water-pots with water, and we may safely leave it to the Lord to turn that water into wine. – J.C. Ryle
