Teaching Your Child to Be a Child of God

Posted by Tracey Daniels at

As you have heard before, our children learn best by watching us. Therefore, we must all take on the characteristics of God and be a good child of God example.  A parent’s  greatest responsibility is to teach their child(ren) to be a child of God and what that means in today’s world.  It means taking on the character of God, for we are made in His image.  We need to treat others with respect and see them as children of God. When we are kingdom people, we follow God’s greatest commandments to love God and love others.

What Does a Child of God Look Like?

Posted by Tracey Daniels at

We are all children of God and deserve to be treated that way. It’s the one rule of LOGOS and foundational to the theology—and theology in action—that we teach at GenOn Ministries. When we are intentional about seeing each person as God sees each person (as God’s child), we have a chance of living out the one rule. And a chance of creating contagious Kingdom of God communities—in our homes, classrooms, churches, neighborhoods, sports teams, social media, everywhere.

Yesterday I wrote on the first of two recent reports I’d heard on the importance of relationships. That one was from Search Institute about helping to influence the quality of family relationships. Read that article here. The second report was one I heard on NPR about a study from Germany measuring how well and how quickly kindergartners solve pattern recognition problems. The research showed that when a picture of a “liked” teacher was (quickly) interspersed with the other puzzle solving pictures, the students solved problems faster than students who didn’t see pictures of a “liked” teacher. One of the conclusions...

I am enough

Posted by Liz Perraud at

At GenOn Ministries we teach and believe that we are all created in the image of God. Much of that teaching centers around how we treat others--that we are called to treat one another as children of God and that no one has the right to treat others as if they do not matter. Can you imagine a world where everyone believes and practices this? Wow. There are LOGOS programs sprinkled all over the US and Canada staffed with lots of adults of all generations who believe this and teach it to the children and youth. Generation after generation. Yeah! ...
