So, what is it we should be trying to pass on to our children. We must help them understand that God's love is not based on our performance, but only His character. We must help our children learn to first and foremost to trust His goodness and character, simply who He is. Practically speaking, this is a process of growth. Our job as parents is to help our children through this process. Kara Powell gives some great advice on how parents can help their children through this process: "First, we help our kids learn to trust God and create the kind of environments where they are able to explore faith and trust while practicing their freedom to respond in love. Second, we model an unconditional, nonjudgmental, and ever-embracing love in which our kids can do nothing that jeopardizes or even lessens that love."
I am praying for you this week as you live out your faith and lead your families in this spiritual process!
