Thoughts on Parenting

This quote reminds me of God, our heavenly father as a parent. God corrects his imperfect children, yet he calls them righteous/perfect and calls forth who they will become. God convicts his children, He does not put the weight of condemnation on them. Conviction leads to repentance, condemnation leads to separation. God models what wise and loving parenting looks like.

As parents, we need to do a heart-check before and after we correct our children. Our acts of discipline must not make our children self-condemn. They should rather build their confidence and lead to repentance.

  1. I’m thankful that God disciplines us in a loving way. I know I wasn’t always on the right track in this area as a parent, but I trust God has worked things out for good. (I just finished your book, and I really enjoyed it. Thanks a lot! I left my review.)
