How to teach my baby about God?

Recommended Posts

Bible songs I learned as a kid have really strengthened my faith once I became a Christian.

I also was impacted by seeing my mom pray and rely on the Lord. I can't wait to hear more about little Sydney when he is born. May God bless him and you.

Thats good. I defintely need to practice more.. I wont push it on him either I kind want him to come to God naturally. Im just kinda like ehhh because i havent read in forever or been to church in a long time.

Remember the verse, "Train a child up in the ways he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

Also, you can plant seeds without being pushy.   Have a brief prayer with him each night before he goes to sleep.   You mentioned getting the Bible picture book, that's good.   Maybe read it briefly with him before bed.    And really Sunday School is good as seeds are planted.

You start now. Bring he/she up in the church of your choice. At about 3 years old explain the Gospel of Grace to your child. Read the Bible to them out loud. Pray for them. Be a decent example as best you can. Don’t yell at them unless totally necessary. Don’t hit them with your hand. Use a wooden spoon on a thigh early when they are horrible in their revolt of you. They will do this at two. Don’t be afraid. You take charge early and you will have a holy kid. Spare the rod, spoil the child. Get control EARLY it’s not mean, it’s LOVE. DONT BE PC.

One smak changes everything. My son was a born rebel at 2. Smak. He now is a 21 year old pastor and student. I did what a God said.  I never had to smak him again. I realize God has him in his hand. Not me. Truth.

I know what you’re saying. My point is that hands are for love. Whipping spoons are for discipline. Trust me it works. Smak once, then threats are effective. “Do you need the whipping spoon?!”  No ! He realized my authority.

Mom used to make us kids go outside and get her a switch .....that little walk to the willow tree was alway worse than the actual whipping .......and all  Dad had to do was just stand up and “ threaten” to use his belt and we all suddenly became  little “ angels”....... haha......

I honestly only whipped him once at a young bratty age. I threatened him forever after. I never had to smak him again. Threats worked for the rest of his growing up. “Do you need the whipping spoon?!!” Straightened Him right up. That’s how you must raise children! It’s NOT abusive. It’s being the authority.
