Pandemic, protests, and politics…how much and what is good to share with our kids about these and other tricky parts of our world today? Ashton points us to Christ’s example in leading others in truth and grace.
How often do you encourage your child to try something hard? When they do and fail miserably how do you encourage them? We often want our kids’ lives to be easy and only full of success. Rachel points us back to the truth of what we have to gain by admitting our weaknesses because of God’s great grace.
Sharing something less-than-awesome about ourselves doesn’t initially sound appealing. In fact, it’s exactly opposite of what our culture encourages so often. Jacob reminds us how doing just that is part of God’s good and perfect plan for each of us!
When we expose the hard parts of our life to those who love us a richness grows in that relationship. Too bad it’s so hard to get to that point. Seth tells us how it is so valuable for us…especially as we interact with kids!
We are the ones responsible for teaching our children what it looks like to live honestly and vulnerably in the world. Titus 2 gives us instructions on how to raise up young men and women. Jacob uses this scripture to remind us of the importance of being real about life with our kids.
Think for just a moment about the things in your life you don’t want anyone else to know about. If we are honest with ourselves, these things haunt us at times, even if we have put our faith and trust in Christ. Jacob points us to the Light to be able to live in the Light.
