“…Teach and counsel each other
with all the wisdom He gives…” Colossians 3:16a
You’ve read my thoughts on what a Rescuer is and how one can Raise Rescuers. Now, let’s talk about us. By us, I mean parents across the world. We are in a common stage of life, share common goals, and want the best for our children and our families.
We’ve all heard it said it “takes a village to raise a child.” Perhaps your village doesn’t raise your children, but within our own personal villages (geography notwithstanding) we have people who support, encourage and advise us. I only know answers to questions I’ve previously asked. I can guess a lot of things, but you know what, some of my most effective parenting practices have come through advice and books. Other people know things I don’t and I am happy to glean wisdom from them.
Do you want to raise your children to make a difference in their world? Even a toddler can be a rescuer for his siblings. Even an elementary school child can stand up the outcast. Even a middle schooler can serve and help those in need. We have opportunities to train and equip our children to be Rescuers at every stage of their lives.
God has made us all different and given us different gifts, talents, abilities and insights. As parents working towards the same goal, why not work together? Why not cooperate in figuring out how we can leave our children more than a monetary inheritance. Why share ideas, thoughts, and success stories together?
If you want to Raise your children to rescue the captive, serve the needy, and save the lost… then you’ve come to the right place. There are a few of us already, and we’d love for you to join us. Click here to capture the vision for Raising Rescuers.
