Parents…can they speak the truth in love?


It’s amazing to me that we live in a day and age when parents expect others to teach and discipline their own children. Some parents expect their church to teach their children about God. Some parents expect their children to learn good manners by working at Chic-Fil-a. Some parents believe that the military will give their children the structure and discipline they need to thrive in today’s world.

It’s sad.

So who is responsible for instructing children in all things? How about the parents.

Parents don’t own their children. Parents are stewards of their children because God owns their children. Parents are to instruct and discipline the children God gave them and to do so in the way that HE alone instructs. Those children belong to God and He wants them raised to know Him and His word in an intimate way. They need the truth in love.
