DO YOU PUT GOD ABOVE YOUR CHILDREN?

I CAN NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY A PARENT WOULD PUT THEIR KIDS ABOVE ANYTHING ELSE. IS THIS REALLY WHAT HE WOULD WANT? WOULD GOD BE SO SELFISH AS TO WANT US TO DO THIS? I PERSONALLY DO NOT BELEIVE SO, DO YOU?

  • I'm not sure what you mean by putting God above children. In what way would someone do that?

    That wouldn't be putting God first,then. I wouldn't turn my back on my children because of the way they live their lives. God has never done that to me. Putting God first means loving without an "if".

  • Absolutely not. A while back I asked if people would die for their beliefs. I said no because my family need me. All those that said yes, I guess they put themselves before the family that need them.

  • My children will ALWAYS come first...before anything and anyone. That's just how it is and how it always will be.

  • My kids are first in ALL areas of my life. I might be a Christian, but I refuse to NOT make my children my number one priority. I would lay my life down for them before I would for anyone else. Not a popular view among the masses, I know. But that's how I feel and believe.

  • Well, I am a Christian. God is very important to me, everything really. But I don't see that there is anyway that my love for God would make me neglect them in anyway. I wouldn't turn my back on them if they did anything. I wouldn't leave them to become a nun or missionary or anything....that's all I can think of that would be neglecting my kids for my faith. I guess people who spend too much time with church ministries, but don't spend enough time with their own kids perhaps? IDK, I see raising my kids to be good people as a service to God, so I wouldn't neglect them for some other ministry in the church. Is that what you mean?
