How to Give Your Kids a Full Picture of God

January 23

For his anger is but for a moment,
            and his favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may tarry for the night,
            but joy comes with the morning.

Psalm 30:5

There was a little boy who had been acting out one day. His mom had tried everything to change his behavior: she sent him to timeout, she put him in his room, and she spanked him. But the little boy kept on misbehaving, even after all that.

Finally, the mom was at her wits’ end. So she told her little boy, “If you don’t start being good, God’s going to get you!” And you know what, it worked. The little boy quieted down and was respectful the rest of the day.

Now, I know there are no perfect parents, but to say such a thing as that – to use God’s name to provoke fear in our children so they’ll obey us – is such a copout for spiritual leadership in the home. I know a man who, when growing up, only heard about God when his parents were angry with him. So they used God to incite guilt and fear. This formed false thinking about God in his mind, which he’s still working to correct to this day.

As parents, we can’t just use God to make our kids obey. We have to communicate God’s love and acceptance to our children so they have a right picture of their Heavenly Father. Show your kids who God really is by giving them a full picture of His grace and love.

SHOW GOD TO YOUR KIDS BY OPENING THEIR EYES TO ALL OF HIS ATTRIBUTES AND LETTING THEM SEE A FULL PICTURE OF HIS CHARACTER.

About PowerPoint

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church — a nearly 37,000-member church with three campuses in the Dallas and North Texas region. Through PowerPoint Ministries, Dr. Graham offers practical, biblical steps on how to tap into God's power for successful Christian living.

About Jack Graham

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Dr. Jack Graham in Plano, Texas. Dr. Graham is the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the nation's largest, most dynamic congregations.

When Dr. Graham came to Prestonwood in 1989, the 8,000-member congregation responded enthusiastically to his straightforward message and powerful preaching style. He challenged the Prestonwood family with a vision for a larger outreach, and in 1999, the church moved from its North Dallas location to a new 7,500-seat auditorium in west Plano.

Thriving with more than 33,000 members, Prestonwood continues to grow with seven weekend worship services, four midweek services, about 300 Bible Fellowship classes for all ages, and multiple outreach and community ministries that reach thousands. In 2006, the church added a second location, the North Campus, in a burgeoning area 20 miles north of Plano. And in 2011, Prestonwood returned to its roots—beginning its third location, the Dallas Campus, about two from miles from its original location.

Dr. Graham has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Protestant denomination, with 16 million members and as president of the SBC Pastor’s Conference.

He is a noted author of numerous books, including You Can Make a Difference, Lessons from the Heart, A Hope and a Future, Life According to Jesus, Are you Fit for Life? and Powering Up. Courageous Parenting, co-authored by his wife, Deb, is based on their experiences as parents. Dr. Graham’s passionate, biblical teaching is also seen and heard across the country and throughout the world on PowerPoint Ministries. Through broadcasts, online sermons and e-mail messages, he addresses relevant, everyday issues that are prevalent in our culture and that strike a chord with audiences worldwide.

Dr. Graham was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1970, and has a master of divinity degree with honors and a doctor of ministry degree in Church and Proclamation from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
