TOPIC: Dangers Of Failed Parenting (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 26 January 2022)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exodus 14–15; Matthew 17

FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 2:12-17 (KJV)

12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the Lord.

13 And the priest’s custom with the people was, that, when any man offered sacrifice, the priest’s servant came, while the flesh was in seething, with a fleshhook of three teeth in his hand;

14 And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did in Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came thither.

15 Also before they burnt the fat, the priest’s servant came, and said to the man that sacrificed, Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw.

16 And if any man said unto him, Let them not fail to burn the fat presently, and then take as much as thy soul desireth; then he would answer him, Nay; but thou shalt give it me now: and if not, I will take it by force.

17 Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the Lord: for men abhorred the offering of the Lord.

MEMORY VERSE: “Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.” – Proverbs 22:15

As a parent, how do you weigh on God’s scale?

Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.

I decree that you will not fail in your parenting duties, in the Name of Jesus.

Mountain Top Life MESSAGE:

Parenting is a responsibility given by God. Parents are going to account to God on how they discharged this divine responsibility. As God’s stewards, they will also be rewarded accordingly.

God is not man, and He has a just reward system. He punished Eli and took the priesthood from his lineage for failing to correct his sons, Hophni and Phineas, who desecrated God’s temple and took what belonged to Him. Eli was a very weak and permissive parent. He spared the rod of discipline and spoilt his children. God expected him to teach, demonstrate and enforce His commandments to his family and others in lsrael. Eli did not. He incurred God’s wrath and fierce judgement.

Beloved, Eli’s misdeed is recorded for our learning and adjustment. How are you faring in your parental responsibilities? Are the biological and spiritual children God put in your care truly in Christ today? Perhaps you are unaware of their spiritual journey and placement. That could be because you think that your responsibility stops at providing them food and shelter. Hence, you regard their spiritual growth and well-being as secondary or unimportant. If this is your state of mind, you are completely wrong.

You are responsible for ensuring that the children and wards in your care are born again, discipled, serving God and heaven-bound primarily and that their physical needs are provided secondarily.

Parental failure is a major concern to God and man today. We need to arrest the ugly consequences of this error that we see in the Church and societies nowadays. Christian children, teenagers and youths can hardly be differentiated from unbelieving ones today. The key points of difference should be their values and fruit. Parents have failed in these areas.

The enemy has turned many youths (Christians and non-Christians) to slay queens and kings, drug addicts and sex perverts. Academic and moral decadence are fast becoming the order of the day. This is nothing but parenting failure.

Teenagers and youths spend their valuable time on frivolities such as social media (relationship and date sites, worldly films sites, and so on) at the expense of their studies and the pursuit of academic excellence.

There is need for parents to arise and salvage the younger generation to the glory of God.



  1. Thank You, Lord, for the children You gave me, in the Name of Jesus.
  2. I declare that I and the children that God has given me are for signs and wonders, in the Name of Jesus.
  3. O Lord, forgive me in any way I have not raised my children according to Your standard, in the Name of Jesus.
  4. Every seed of carelessness planted in my children’s lives, catch fire, in the Name of Jesus.
  5. O God, release Your grace upon me to raise godly children, in the Name of Jesus.
  6. Every battle from the pit of hell to make me fail as a parent, die, in the Name of Jesus.
  7. I shall not be a bad foundation for my children, in the Name of Jesus.
