There is much to be said for men and women who courageously evangelize on college campuses, in prisons, and near shopping centers. After all, the Bible indicates that disciples are primarily made by going out to meet lost people where they are. But make no mistake about it: if you’re a parent, The Great Commission has come to you—in a bassinet, a booster seat, or a bunk-bed. While other parenting philosophies rely on “what seems to work” (i.e. pragmatism), “what we’ve always done” (i.e. traditionalism), or “what’s right for us” (i.e. relativism), a better perspective is founded upon a biblical approach: teaching the full counsel of God and allowing Scripture to do its work in a child’s heart. How do we accomplish this? We must examine the Bible’s instructions for pastors, and then apply those principles in the home. In other words, just as the preacher must be committed to expository preaching, so too must the parent be committed to expository parenting.
