Just behind wanting our children to love Jesus is a parent’s desire for their child to marry the right spouse and have a fulfilling future marriage. In today’s episode we talk about some of those issues, give some ideas on talking points and review Voddie Baucham’s book “What He Must Be…If He Wants To Marry My Daughter.”
Here’s some of the highlights from the book:
- He must be a follower of Jesus Christ.
- He must be prepared to lead like Christ.
- He must be committed to children.
- He must practice being a Protector, a Provider, a Priest, and a Prophet.
While this book is aimed at parents of daughters, it easily applies for parents who want to encourage their sons to be the right kind of man.
In the end we want to encourage parent’s to start good conversations with their children about marriage. This decision is too important to not have intentional discussions…and to be daily praying for our children in this area. Start today!
