Sermon Notes

This week Pastor Deric continues his series The Sacred Image with a sermon for Christian Education Sunday in Proverbs 22:6 entitled “Myths About Educating Our Children”

Proverbs 4 (read over the chapter a couple of times)
Ice Breaker: In your experience, who has been your favourite teacher/instructor/coach and why? In what ways did they influence your growth?
1. From these verses, what role must a parent accept in the life of their children?
2. What would be of primary importance to share with your children? (also see Deut. 6:5-7)
3. Ideally, how does a parent learn how to instruct their children? How else could a parent learn this? (vv.3-4)
4. What are the benefits of good instruction? (vv.10-13)
5. What will happen if we ignore the God-given role as teacher to our children? (vv.14-17)
6. What role does the church play in the education of it’s members?

“We teach best by how we live life; who we are instructs with absolute clarity.” – Bryant McGill
