Parenting the Faith (Mark 9:41-50)

While there are many things that positively influence the likelihood of a child carrying their faith on into adulthood, missiologists and sociologists have identified three critical things. Third on the list — making sure that in their church, kids feel the safety and freedom to ask whatever questions they have about life and love and God. The second most important factor in the faith development of children is that someone who isn’t their parent and isn’t their pastor take an interest in their spiritual life. And the very most important factor is simply this — that kids see their parents actively loving Jesus, serving their neighbors, and participating in Christian community.
