Why It’s Important To Raise My Child To Serve

There are so many important reasons to teach your child to serve others.  Serving others helps a child learn not to be so self centered, it raises a child to be marriageable and helps them to be great employees.  The most important reason to teach our children to serve is the fact that it grows them into becoming someone that God can use mightily.

If we think back to many of the Old Testament greats, they were servants.  When we train our children to serve it is something that God may not have to do later on in life, think Joseph and Moses.  Both of these men had to spend some time in humbling experience to teach them this concept before they could be used mightily in the plan God had for them.

Another reason that we need to teach our children to serve is that Jesus himself tells us how important it is to serve others.  The religious leaders tried to trap him by asking what the greatest commandment was in Luke 10:27. “He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”  How we show our love for God is by serving those around us.  Create an attitude of service in your home today!
