sermonette: Teaching By Example
Children Learn By What Their Parents Do
Ted E. Bowling
Given 12-Oct-02; Sermon #579s; 14 minutes
Ted Bowling in this sermonette stresses that we are creatures of habit, learning best by repeated examples. Good skills and habits learned as children will ensure success in later life.Our characteristics (good or bad) we find reflected in our children. As parents we must, by our example, show our children how to love God and His commandments with all our being, by keeping the Sabbath and praying continually. We delude ourselves if we think we can teach without being an example. Through our reactions in our tests and trials, we are teaching principles. Christ's examples dramatized His spoken words. We teach better by doing than by telling.
