Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: Psalm 127:1a
As Christian parents, we desire to build our families on the Word of God. We understand the value of Scripture and applying it to our lives. The command in Proverbs 22:6 affirms the heart of our parenting “Train up a child in the way he should go”.
There IS a way our children should go and God expects us to show it to them!

But how do we actually build that strong family foundation on the word of God?
Training is more than simply enforcing a certain form of behavior. Training is guiding and directing the heart toward righteousness.
While our words as parents can affect the behavior of our children, many times, it seems our words are powerless to affect the hearts of our children. Our words don’t get past the surface issue to penetrate to the heart.
We need God’s Word to reach the hearts of our children, as His Word is so much more powerful than OUR words. It is such a simple truth, but so incredibly important as we seek to train our children!
We know this, yet when faced with a behavior or attitude problem with our kids, instead of pulling out the powerful piercing sword that God has given us, we resort to our own powerless words.
But what if we didn’t?
- What would happen if you knew where to turn to in God’s word to find what you need in those moments?
- What if you had easy access to thousands of verses organized by topic to meet you where you are at?
- How would your parenting change if, at your fingertips, you could have Scriptures laid out for you showing character contrasts?
- And most importantly how much more intentional could you become in building a solid foundation with God’s word at the center of your family?
This is a wonderful tool to use when training and correcting your children with God’s Word, rather than simply using your own words.

As Moses tells us in Deuteronomy 6:6-7 “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”
Let’s not lose sight of God’s desire for us in parenting our children to have a strong foundation in Him.
