There is a school of thought that kids today really aren’t all that different than kids from earlier generations. & that may be true to a certain extent, but the world around them does seem to be changing. Josh McDowell says it’s just not enough to teach our kids what to believe anymore.
Culture was not in your face, against what your parents taught you & your pastor taught you – and you could survive with a good belief system. Today, almost everything you teach them flies in the face of culture. It’s not enough to raise our children with beliefs, we need to raise them with convictions, which means knowing what you believe, why you believe it, and experiencing it in your life.
Josh points to 1 Peter 3:15, which tells us to “be ready with an answer for the hope we have.” He’s also written dozens of books that can help, including The One Year Book of Family Devotions.
