I’m sharing a little video today that reaches deep into the heart of Christian parenting.
I first heard from Paul Tripp when I attended his parenting seminar. I walked away filled with many life-changing principles he shared about the heart of parenting and discipline.
Watching the video, I realise how inadequate I am as a parent, and also how much I need God’s grace. I am also reminded that parenting is a process, one that possibly lasts way beyond our physical life here on earth, since the values we sow are reaped through generations.
Some of my favourite quotables from the video:
“…love does its best work when people aren’t deserving.”
“Meet me by your grace so I can be a tool of your grace in the life of my children.”
“What I want for that child first is to experience the same grace I’m experiencing…That’s just a whole different world of parenting.”
“All of parenting is a gracious rescue.”
“…A parent must embrace his/her inability in order to find the liberation of being an instrument in the hands of God.”
“We’re not requiring the change as an event; we’re allowing it to be a process.”
I hope this blesses you, and renews your strength and determination to raise your little ones by drawing on the grace and unconditional love of God daily.
