Proverbs 22:6 New Living Translation (NLT) 

Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.

Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.
Proverbs 22:6 New Living Translation (NLT)

As parents, our constant challenge is to direct our children toward their God design and to empower them to live their best life. I have always loved being a Dad. Our kids are so individual, each with unique talents, God design and life call.

Like so many of us, I had the opportunity to be at the latest Middle and Secondary Musical, Into the Woods. I always love the musicals as we see students stepping up, taking risks and being enlarged by the process. What a spectacle, but more significant are the life lessons learnt from such endeavours.

As parents and leaders, we must never lose the wonder of the privilege we have to shape and empower lives. We empower those coming after us by our consistent example. Those we lead and especially our own kids, are shaped by who we are much more than what we say. They may not obey but they rarely fail to emulate. Ha ha…no pressure.

We empower by imparting a compelling WHY, not just a WHAT. Not just a set of rules, behaviours or habits, but the driving and underlying mission we have as parents and leaders is to live Christ-like lives that draw others to relationship with Jesus.

We empower through clear instruction: not just the WHY and the WHAT but a clear and systematic HOW. When we can breakdown our expectations and train rather than just expect, we see growth towards maturity. This growth, as we all know, is a journey that never ends.

Brisbane Christian College exists to partner with families to empower our students to step confidently into their future: intellectually, emotionally, socially and spiritually.

Have a great day!
