Training: Parenting Foundations, Part 1


“Power can force obedience, only love can summon a response of love.”

                 Philip Yancey



Love is Foundational in Parenting:



“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.            Deut. 6:4



1.) Love is _______________________________________________________.








 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.

Deut. 6:5-6


2.) Love is _______________________________________________________.

  • Love = Ahava (Hebrew) = Root meaning = “I + Give”






 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deut. 6:7-9


3.) Love ________________________________________________________.








We love (and we can love) because God first loved us! (1 John 4:19)
