Your Job As A Parent

The Bible says, “As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings” (Deuteronomy 32:11). What is an eagle doing when she does this? She is teaching her little eaglets to fly by stirring up her nest. If you are a parent, your job is to give your children wings so they can leave the nest.

When you’re raising your boys and girls, you need to be preparing them to leave your home. Don’t be so interested in making your children comfortable. Try to build in them some character and get them ready to leave the nest.

Do you know what your job is? Your job is to work yourself out of a job. Do you know that a parent is successful when the children no longer need them? You see, you work yourself out of a job, but you don’t work yourself out of a relationship.

Jesus said, “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock” (Matthew 7:24).
