I hope following is a great encouragement to all parents. I also hope it will serve as a brief introduction to Dr. Stuart Scott. The passage below is taken directly from “The Faithful Parent: A Biblical Guide to Raising a Family,” a book coauthored by Dr. Scott.
First Baptist Church Eastman is privileged to have Dr. Scott as its keynote speaker for its upcoming Biblical Parenting Conference! For more information about Dr. Scott or about FBCE’s Biblical Parenting Conference please click the highlighted links.
Each child whom God gives us is a special blessing from him. He blesses us not only with the child but also with the promise that when we need help, we can always “with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Heb 4:16). God has promised that his is “faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability…” (1 Cor 10:13).
We have great hope not only in God’s provision of daily grace to help us, but also from the help that is in God’s Word. The Bible was, among other reasons, “written for our instruction, that through endurance and through encouragement of the Scriptures we might have have hope” (Rom 15:4). A recent television commercial claimed that “children do not come with an instruction manual.” Well that simply is not true. The Bible does tell us what we need to know, and God will give us supernatural help to be faithful to God’s Word.
