When the Child’s Other Home Is Not Faithful

with Ron Deal | July 30, 2020

For millions of kids of divorce, the beliefs taught in their two homes couldn't be further apart. One mom asked how she could share the gospel with her two girls who live with their unbelieving father. Of course, she's praying for them and she can share biblical wisdom and insight, even at a distance, through texting and social media. When the kids visit, she can share her faith community with them. Don't shove the Bible down their throats; just let the good news come alive in their presence.

Ron: We expect the world to try to pull our kids away from Christ, but sometimes, it’s their own family.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: For millions of kids of divorce, the beliefs taught in their two homes couldn’t be further apart. One mom asked how she could share the gospel with her two girls who live with their unbelieving father. Of course, she’s praying for them, but she’s worried that the other home’s influence will squash their trust in the Lord.

Well, in addition to living by example, this mom can share biblical wisdom and insight, even at a distance, through texting and social media. And when the kids visit, she can share her faith community with them. Don’t shove the Bible down their throats; just let the good news come alive in their presence. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
