Three Ways Teaching Our Children Forgiveness
Demonstrates the Gospel

When my kids were very young, I had a hard time not losing my patience with them on a daily basis.  I love kids, but I just expected my kids to- well, be perfect, and perfect, they weren’t!  Of course they were growing and maturing, but it felt like such a slow process when they were in the middle of it and still so young.   When they went against my rules, the anger would sometimes get the best of me, and I would think, “How DARE those kids disrespect me like that?!”

Importance of Finding Security in Jesus

While praying about which character trait to focus on for my monthly devotional, the word “secure” kept coming to my mind. This is not a traditional character trait that we tend to focus on as parents, and I tried to brush it away, but I felt God continuing to press it into my heart.

As I continued to pray and seek God on the matter, I felt that He wanted us as parents to focus on security, because it is one of the most important attributes our children need to thrive in this life.
