Child Training Principle #2: Heaven Motivations for Earthly Child Training
April 08, 2018      |     By: Sam McVay, Jr.      |      Category: Teachings

Biblical child training is about releasing the life and values of heaven into our earthly children. Sam and Amy McVay share the heavenly values they strive for and encourage having a values-driven home, not a rules-driven one.  The "rules" actually manifest out from the values when the values lay the foundation.

Jesus taught us to pray and, we believe, to live “as it is in heaven may it be on earth”.

This is true of every area in our lives, especially child training.

Biblical Child training in the lives of believers is not about “behavioral management” or just “staying out of trouble”.
It is primarily about releasing the life and values of heaven into our earthly children.

I Corinthians 14:33a (ESV)
33 For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.

We are radically committed to heavenly values filling our earthly family and home.

Our practical discipline and management is governed by these values.

Heavenly Values:
- Exaltation of Jesus
- Culture of love & honor
- Lives in the Truth
- Removal of Satanic influences & inroads
- Removal of rebellion: inward and outward
- Exposing and removing a "spirit of manipulation"
- Atmosphere of Peace

These values drive our practical implementation of child training.

Psalm 139:15-16 (ESV)
My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
