Question: What’s the most important thing (ever) you could teach your daughter?
- Not to talk to strangers?
- To be kind and considerate to others?
- To value and protect her purity?
- How to cook?
All important for raising Godly girls. (The cooking one’s a bonus!) BUT not what I’m talking about!
So … what’s the most important thing to teach your daughter?
Answer: Her value and worth as God’s precious, beautiful daughter.
If your daughter truly knows who she is in God – that she has a Father who is proud of her, who delights in her, who loves her unconditionally – then she will be able to stand stronger, more secure and confident, in all this world throws at her.
Your daughter can know God’s arms of love around her when others hurt or reject her. Your daughter can be secure in her beauty and worth, and not have to try and impress others. Your daughter can remain confident in who she is, even when she fails.
Wow! What a privilege to be daughters of God, daughters of the King – a truth we all need revelation of (in fact, we need our own revelation of God as Father, in order to share that with our girls).
It’s a truth God’s been speaking deep into my heart these last few years … through the story of a woman in the Bible I’d previously only thought of negatively: Eve! God has shown me just how precious Eve was to Him. She was His treasured daughter. Even when she sinned, God sought her out, call her to Himself, and clothed her. What a picture of unconditional love and acceptance.
I’d love to share with you a 3-day devotional I’ve written to help your daughter discover, and grow in, her identity as God’s beautiful daughter: Treasures Hidden in the Story of Eve (Girls Only Edition)
This devotional explores the story of Eve, and her relationship with God as Father.
