ENUMCLAW, Wash., March 4, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- Simply turn on the news or radio, or flip open the newspaper, and you will learn of sad and malicious events that shake our world and our families to the core.
Drawing on sixteen-plus years of children's ministry experience and ten-plus years working in a college setting, author Jungu Olobia has seen it all—and believes the safety and godly upbringing of our children begins at home, or wherever they are taught or mentored. From an early age, children learn how to behave, and as they grow, how to interact in their relationships at school, church, and in their communities and around the world. And though etiquette varies between cultures, practicing good manners is a kindness that extends across cultures because the way we treat one another matters.
We want to raise and train our children in safe, healthy environments, but the daily encounters of a fallen world make it challenging. A parent herself, Jungu says good manners are desperately needed in our society, and that "we as parents and guardians have a God-given responsibility to train our children. It takes work—daily prayer, daily studying the Word of God, setting healthy boundaries, and surrounding ourselves with wise, like-minded people for support."
Much has been written on good etiquette, but this practical, captivating book points readers to Jesus Christ as the Lord and the Holy Spirit as the Teacher of good manners, clearly illustrating that the Bible is the Life Manual for good behavior that comes from God's heart. And taking time to learn and understand good etiquette will help others build better personal and professional relationships and open doors where education, beauty, or money cannot.
From biblical examples to personal examples, reflection verses and practical steps, and prayers and Scriptures to pray over our children, Considering Others: Good Manners to Glorify God will help parents, teachers, and mentors develop good manners in children of all ages.
