For Instruction in Righteousness : A Topical Reference Guide for Biblical Child-Training
- ISBN-13: 9781891206290
Now in its 3rd edition, For Instruction in Righteousness has been updated and expanded after 18 years of faithful service. This new edition has over 50 pages added, with many chapters expanded as a result of additional parenting experience and Bible study.
This book was originally written for our own benefit, to help us fulfill the important duties Scripture requires of us as parents:
•We must discipline our children when they disobey God's standards
•We must encourage our children when they obey
•We must exhort our children daily, and restore them when they show repentance
•We must warn unruly children of the consequences of their sin
•We must direct our children to God's Word for guidance
•We must deliver appropriate consequences promptly and consistently
•We must provide an example of God's justice and mercy
For Instruction in Righteousness is a valuable tool that will help you, in specific ways, to fulfill each of these duties God has given us. Most chapters include each of the following sections:
•What the Bible says will, or should, happen to a person who sins in this way, with ideas for discipline that parallel these Biblical consequences.
•Instructions the Bible gives for repenting of this sin (newly added in this edition!)
•What the Bible likens a person to when he indulges in this sin, and ideas for practical object lessons using these examples.
•How God blesses the person who resists temptations to this sort of sin, with parallel ideas for "rewards" and encouragement when children show progress in overcoming this sin.
•Stories and people in the Bible that illustrate obedience and disobedience in this area.
•Fully quoted memory verses.
