Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.
Proverbs 22:6 New Living Translation (NLT)
As parents, our constant challenge is to direct our children toward their God’s design and to empower them to live their best life. I have always loved being a Dad. Our kids are so individual, each with unique talents, God’s design, and life call. We must never lose the wonder of the privilege we have to shape and empower lives. We empower those coming after us through our consistent example. Those we lead and especially our own kids are shaped by who we are much more than what we say. They may not obey but they rarely fail to emulate. Ha ha…no pressure.
We empower by imparting a compelling WHY, not just a WHAT. Not just a set of rules, behaviours, or habits, but the driving and underlying mission we have as parents and leaders are to live Christ-like lives that draw others to a relationship with Jesus.
We empower through clear instruction: not just the WHY and the WHAT but a clear and systematic HOW. When we can break down our expectations and train rather than just expect, we see growth towards maturity. This growth, as we all know, is a journey that never ends.
Brisbane Christian College exists to partner with families to empower our students to step confidently into their future: intellectually, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.
Have a great day!
