This topical Bible for parents will help you use the Bible every time your children need instruction. Hundreds of Bible verses are organized according to 52 common types of misbehavior, along with numerous parenting ideas and suggestions.

Now in its 3rd edition, For Instruction in Righteousness has been updated and expanded after 18 years of faithful service. This new edition has over 50 pages added, with many chapters expanded as a result of additional parenting experience and Bible study.

Most chapters include each of the following sections:

-What the Bible says will, or should, happen to a person who sins in this way, with ideas for discipline that parallel these Biblical consequences.
-Instructions the Bible gives for repenting of this sin (newly added in this edition!)
-What the Bible likens a person to when he indulges in this sin, and ideas for practical object lessons using these examples.
-How God blesses the person who resists temptations to this sort of sin, with parallel ideas for rewards and encouragement when children show progress in overcoming this sin.
-Stories and people in the Bible that illustrate obedience and disobedience in this area.
-Fully quoted memory verses.

In addition to these 52 topical chapters, extra sections discuss:

-Gods Word as our authority
-Helping your children learn from Scripture
-Using For Instruction in Righteousness for life-changing Bible study
-Thoughts on rewarding children
-Thoughts on paying children for work

We want our children to understand that right and wrong are absolutes, based on Gods standards, not ours. If we train our children to submit to the authority of Gods standards, those standards will not change when the children grow up and leave the authority of our homes.

We dont want to discipline in anger; we want to show grief over the childs sin, and we want to lead him to true repentance.
When we discipline, we want to picture for our children our heavenly Fathers holiness and His mercy. That is why we went to the Bible and started studying.

This book provides a wealth of material for personal Bible study, family worship, character training, unit studies, and Bible study projects for older children.

Scripture quotations are from the KJV and NKJV.
