Before carrying out the baby dedication ceremony

Before actually carrying out the ceremony of baby dedication, it is crucial that pastors counsel the parents of the child about the meaning of dedication. First of all, if the parents truly wish for their child to one day love and follow God, they should love God themselves.

Secondly, the parents should realize that the duty of teaching their children belongs to them. For example, Sunday schools can provide weekly instructions, but parents should explain the value of prayer at meal times and before bed. The parents are also the ones who should urge their children to read aloud Bible stories for devotions and give them practical ideas that can be implemented into the daily family routine.
