STRENGTHENED BY FAITH

We all know about Daniel. He was a young man when he was brought to the king’s palace. He was handsome, quick to understand, had an aptitude for every kind of learning and a strong faith (Dan 1:4, 1:8). But more importantly, he had favour with God (Dan 1:9) that gave him access to the king’s palace. So where did this strong faith come from that led God to favour him?
There is a very good chance it originated with his parents who trained him up in faith and helped make him fit to serve a king for the King of kings. The role of parenting can be huge in shaping the skills and strengths of a child. From the chapters of Daniel, we can see how strong his faith was; ‘Daniel resolved not to defile himself’ (Dn 1:8). It takes well-established faith to do such a thing at his young age, especially in a foreign culture and in the king’s house filled with temptation.
As parents, it’s our role to impart the faith and values that God wants his children to have. Later, as they go on to face the hardships in this fallen world, they will draw upon these attributes. But, we cannot give them something we do not have ourselves. Therefore, it should be our goal to develop our faith and pass on spiritual strength to our children. Spiritual strength that will ooze out of them at times of temptation and trial and bring the favour of God.
As we see evil things becoming a part of our culture, we can be assured that our children will need spiritual strength. As parents, let's make a difference so they too will walk in God’s Favour.

Outstanding and much needed message in my corner of the world where two back to back generations have shirked their spiritual responsibility to their children and it sadly shows.
