PARENTING/FAMILY SERMON OUTLINES

by Frank Pollard

In the last verse of II Samuel 18 we read the heartbroken cry of King David for his lost son. It happened a long time ago, yet these words are tragically up-to-date. They are the words of a careless parent: "O my son! My son, Absalom! Absalom,my son! If only I had died in your place, my son! Absalom, my son!" David had great family problems. Especially tragic…

This evening we are taking a look at our owner's manual. You see we were bought with a price, we are no longer our own. The Owner of your life and my life has written out just what He expects from each of us. He also has included instructions that keep us running in tip top condition - FOREVER. Have you looked at your Bible that way this week? It is the exact…

Jesus Christ emphasized and elevated the institution of marriage by asserting it to be a permanent relationship. It is the basis for family living. In a day when family life is rapidly deteriorating somebody needs to speak a good word for the family. That's my intent. Dr. Ernest Gordon, Dean of Chapel at Princeton University ended one of his books with this…

God has a very interesting kind of mathematics in this passage. The Lord says that in marriage one plus one equals one. He said you take a man and you take a woman and the two become one. There in that little formula which God has given is the formula for success in a marital relationship. Now if we are to build the...

We are nearing the end of our study of the book of 1st Thessalonians! Tonight we're in chapter 5 picking up where we left off last time together in verse 12 thinking about The Essentials for a Happy Family. Now keep in mind that the church is more like a family than it is a business. Now there is a business side to the church, but in function, it's more like…

If you have your Bible, please turn to Ephesians chapter 4. I want to talk today about "The FUNctional Family." Now the word dysfunctional is one that we hear a lot, dysfunctional is an adjective that means "not operating normally or properly." It means "deviating from the norm in a way that's regarded as bad." Dysfunctional is a term that's so often attached to family. We talk about the dysfunctional family. You don't hear much about the functional family...

There was a young couple who had just purchased brand new appliances for their house, and they decided to give their old refrigerator to their parents. Since they lived many miles apart, they just shipped the refrigerator to their parents. A few days later the phone rang, her mother said, "Honey, we want to send you a check for the refrigerator." The daughter…

We all know that children are in trouble today! Our society is destroying their lives! In the 1950s kids lost their innocence. They were liberated from their parents by well-paying jobs, cars, and lyrics in music that gave rise to a new term ---the generation gap. In the 1960s, kids lost their authority. It was a decade of protest---church, state, and parents were all called into…

Sometimes I wish that I could be something other than a Baptist for a few minutes and shout. We are doing a series on parenting because we have partnered with the young parents in this church to try to help you raising spiritual champions. We want to help you with your marriage...

This year, six-million Americans are going to take part in the greatest event of their lives. I mean, perhaps the most life-changing event outside of conversion that ever happens to a person. Six million Americans! It will be more important than the way they vote. It will be more important than any art work they may create. It will be more important than any…

Moses had instructions for God's people concerning their home and family. What a challenge it is for me to speak on this important subject that all of us need to hear something about, because you either have children or grandchildren, or you have nieces or nephews, or you know children as they run around here at the..

We're talking about parenting, parenting on purpose. It is difficult to be a good person, could I get a witness. It is even more difficult to be a good husband or a good wife. I think it is most difficult being a good parent. It's one of life's toughest assignments. In fact parenting is so difficult that if you casual about it, you're not going to be...

I don't know about you, but I like to do puzzles. I like to get the paper in the morning and do the Jumble and the Crypto-quote and the Crossword puzzle. I like word puzzles. Debbie, she likes number puzzles. Well, she has turned me on recently to the Sudoku puzzle. It's numbers 1 through 9. And you have to figure out what ...

Somebody said, "If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, then children must be from another universe altogether." I know many parents who love their kids deeply feel that way about them at times, and many kids who love their parents deeply feel at times like their parents are from another planet. Children and...

Today we will give you a lot of nuts and bolts, so I encourage you to write this down. Pen, pencil, lipstick or mascara. Spear these thoughts with the point of your pen. Someone said, the poorest ink is greater than the best memory. When the Gospel came to Ephesus a revolution came with it. It was said of the Apostles, "These men are...

God created certain institutions. The First one was the family. Yet Jesus taught that His coming would break up the traditional family. Matt 10:34-36 34 ''Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn '''a man against his father, a daughter against her...

We continue, this morning, to unpack Paul's admonition to ''look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.'' It's such a simple and ordinary command given to the Christian, take advantage of every opportunity and every sphere of life to speak light into the...

Now, would you open your Bibles please to First Corinthians, the last several verses in chapter six and then on into chapter seven. First Corinthians chapter six and verse nineteen. We're thinking today on this subject, SURVIVAL FOR THE FAMILY. "What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is...

The pastor was visiting the 4th grade Sunday School class to talk about marriage as part of the lesson. He asked the class, ''What does the Bible say about marriage?'' Immediately, one little boy replied, `Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.' - How true that so often is. God commanded our first parents to be...
