And God Created Children (6 of 7)
Series: Home Field Advantage
Jeff Schreve
Psalm 127:1-5

After 2 years of marriage husband came home from work he walked in the front door. And the wife greeted him at the front door with a hug and a kiss. And she said ''Honey I have some big news.'' He said ''Oh what's that?'' She said ''Well in a little while there will no longer just be the two of us there'll be an addition to our family.'' He said ''Are you serious? You have made me the happiest man in the world!'' She said ''I'm so glad to hear that because week after next mother moves in.'' (Laughter) Not what he was expecting.

Now today in our series Home Field Advantage we want to talk about children. We want to talk about raising children what God has to say about parents and their children. And let me just say right off the bat there are no perfect parents. There's not a human being alive who is a perfect parent. Some of you young kids and you think well one day when I get to be a parent I'm going to be a perfect parent. No you won't there are no perfect parents! Sometimes when you hear a sermon on parenting you start getting ready to wear some guilt and receive some guilt cause you're like oh I have just done a terrible job as a parent or I am doing a terrible job as a parent but listen, there are no speaking he said this ''Before my wife and I had kids I'd travel all over the country and I would speak on this message I'd titled it The Ten Commandments for Raising Perfect Kids.'' He said ''Then I had a kid and I changed my talk to Ten Hints for Parents. And then I had my second child and I changed my talk to Tentative Suggestions for Fellow Strugglers.'' I mean that's just the way it goes. He said when he had his third kid he quit talking about parenting all together. No perfect parents but we do have a perfect Father in heaven and He wants to help us raise our children. And He has much to say on the subject of children and their parents.
