MFM Cleric charges spouse on effective Christian parenting

IN apparent bid to instil Godliness and discipline in homes, the Senior Regional Overseer, Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, USA, Dr Femi Ajila has advised parents to pay more attention towards the spiritual growth of their children and wards, and called on them to make the word of God the foundation of the upbringing of their children and wards.

Speaking with National Daily newspaper on effective Christian parenting, shortly after the wedding of his son, Olumide Chris Ajila to former Miss Hannah Yemisi Demuren in Anglican Church of Ascension, Opebi, last week, Pastor Ajila stated that although schools and churches could contribute towards the effective Christian parenting, 95 per cent of the discipline and upbringing of children and wards rests on the parents.

“It is true that the school and church, may contribute significantly to the process of education, discipline and children upbringing, but no outside agency can equal the influence of parent as educative force. Parents should use home as a place to shape and mould the character of their children. However, in every godly home, it must be joint affair in partnership with the Holy Spirit.
To raise godly children, parents should love and talk in love and in firmness. Parents must show good example to them. In addition, parents should desist from comparing their children with others because each child is uniquely and divinely endowed with his own gifts and talents.”
