Friends for Our children

"How do we teach our children to love others who choose a worldly path, but not embrace what they are doing and not condemn them?"

Every dad who understands the need to love others and yet has purposed to raise his children "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4) should be concerned about this. We want to show the love of Christ to all we come in contact with and teach our children to do the same. We should teach our children to shun what Scripture says is wrong and worldly but to embrace what is of the Lord. In doing so, our children will view others through our grid of teaching and deem their conduct, activities and dress as good, bad, or in between.
