Top 100 Bible Verses for Parents

 

Being a parent is not merely a label, but a big responsibility and a duty that requires a heart of sacrifice and compassion. Parents who desire to see their children blossom within the love of Christ should consider rearing their children with the guidance of scripture. 

What is the definition of a parent? By definition, it means one who “brings forth, produces” someone else. It is a valuable and great responsibility to bring forth another life through the grace of God. Remember to love your children the way God loved you and forgive them, as God has forgiven you.
