1 Corinthians 4:2 “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.”

Parents are stewards of the children God has given to them, and God holds each steward accountable for their care. To be a dependable parent:

  • Fulfill obligations-legal and otherwise-in a timely way, without hassle, and without using them to manipulate the other parent.
  • Respect the court ordered purpose of the support. Offer to give a periodic account to the other parent of how the funds are used to care for the children.
  • Plan regular meetings by phone or in person, so that both parents stay informed of issues concerning the child.
