Release Your Child to the Lord

July 31, 2016 1 Thessalonians 2:7-12 Download: Audio Notes

In his first letter to the Thessalonians, the apostle Paul told them that he had been willing to parent according to their situation, sometimes gentle and affectionate like a mother and sometimes strong like a father in order to release them to live up to God’s calling. We can parent our children following God’s Word to match our child’s situation with a goal of releasing them to the Lord. The text gives three parenting styles that we can use in releasing our children to the Lord.
