Ten Things to Teach Your Sons

1. Love the Lord with all your heart, mind, and body. Keep yourself pure.

2. Be obedient and respectful to the authorities in your life, specifically: God, parents, civil authorities and laws, teachers and school rules, and all adults.

3. Act like a man. Someday, you’ll be one.

4. Use good manners and the correct etiquette for where you live. Be polite, and try not to offend others.

5. Learn a marketable trade so that you can support a family when you are an adult.

6. Treat all women with respect and gentlemanliness. Treat your mother, grandmothers, sisters, cousins, and all other girls like ladies. Act with courtesy and finesse. Know what to say and how to act around women.

7. Develop a good, clean sense of humor, and don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself sometimes.

8. Prepare yourself for leadership in your family and in the church by participating in decisions and service now. Learn responsibility in your home and in your church. Be faithful in the little things.

9. Learn all you can from your elders, especially your parents, teachers, and pastor.

10. Read the Bible and good books. Study persons of faith and character.
