One of them was destined to lead Israel from slavery.

King David was undeniably a godly man. Yet his children, for the most part, grew up to be really bad people. Being a good person doesn't necessarily mean that you will raise good children; nor does it mean that you are being a good parent.
On the other hand, raising your children by faith and with intent and purpose does carry with it a promise from God.
Amram and Jochebed could not have lived in a more difficult time to give birth to a baby Hebrew boy. The politics, the economy and the general disposition of the common person toward people of faith made these dark days indeed. But these parents faithfully obeyed God rather than men and were richly rewarded for it.
This quiz considers the challenges Amram and Jochebed faced and makes applications to our current parenting challenges.
In this lecture we will consider the opportunities and heartbreaks of parenting. Parenting successfully requires that we take advantage of every opportunity to raise our children to live successfully on that heartbreaking day when they leave our home to accomplish God's destiny for them.
Every parent must one day release their child to the purpose for which God created them. It takes great faith to do that. this lecture outlines what I believe to be the most essential years of parenting, and what are our targets during them.
Let's explore the interpretations of Proverbs 22:6. God's Word promises that, when children are raised purposefully, faithfully and in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, we will be successful parents.
