Which Way Do You Parent Your Children?

January 22, 2014

“There is all the difference in the world between parenting your children in a certain way because you are obsessed with God, because you long to reveal the source of your deepest joy to them, versus parenting them according to a plan that is designed to mature them into delightful young people. The second way, the Old Way of the written code, puts pressure on both you and your kids–on you to get it right, and on them to meet your expectations.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, SoulTalk, Page 205

Questions for Reflection:
Whether or not you are a parent, can you relate to Dr. Crabb’s description of the Old Way in any of your relationships?
How do you think your relationships might look if your sole purpose was to reveal God?
