Bishop David Oyedepo On Why Parents Must Properly Raise Their Children

The founder and President of Living Faith Church Worldwide aka Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo turned 60 today and many goodwill messages have continued to pour in to celebrate him. His messages of faith are a great source of inspiration to many around the world. Happy Birthday Sir!

During a recent interview, Bishop Oyedepo advised parents to be concerned about the spiritual and moral upbringing of their children. Also see his wife's lovely birthday wish to him after the cut.
Two of your children, Pastors David and Isaac Oyedepo, are doing well in ministry. In fact, Pastor David Oyedepo Jnr held the congregation spellbound during the last Shiloh, by his ministration. What was going on in your mind during that service? What lesson(s) can be drawn from the way your children have turned out vis-à-vis the way many parents raise their children today?

I simply see Psalm 112:1-3 being fulfilled. Secondly, let it be noted that my wife played a principal role in the spiritual and moral upbringing of our children. For instance, just as parents get teachers for their children for various subjects to improve their performance, we specially got a Bible lesson teacher for our kids while growing up in primary and secondary schools. 

The combination of all these efforts, I strongly believe, is responsible for both their spiritual and intellectual robustness. Don’t also forget that the Bible says that if we properly raise our children, they would exhibit excellent character traits for the rest of their lives. I’ll, therefore, advise parents to be concerned about the spiritual and moral upbringing of their children.

To my Husband:

In 60 years, you have by the help of God made your footprints stick in the sands of time.
I pray that Proverbs 4:18 will continue to be your experience!
Your light shall continue to shine brighter and brighter!
Fresh oil will be the order of the day for you!
Greater unction and greater impact shall be your testimony!
Better days alone, shall you see ahead in Jesus’ name!
You are the most daring, fearless, thorough, humorous, visionary, energetic, passionate, generous, spiritually depth-filled and diligent man I know and I celebrate you with passion!
I am excited to see what more God is set to do through you and am so privileged, blessed and honoured to be such a part of you.
Happy birthday, my affectionate husband of over 30 years!
With love and deep appreciation,
Faith Abiola Oyedepo
