i know some outstanding godly men… i interviewed their moms and dads about the things they did right … and the things they think they did wrong.
i’m dying to share all of what they shared, but i haven’t quite wrapped my mind entirely around all of the things i’ve learned… i have notes, and i’m working on it. i promise i will share what i learned with you. for a teaser… here are a few things that the parents all agreed on:
1 – pray, pray, pray.
2- keep ’em busy.
3- pay attention to the friends your kids are choosing.
4-make sure they are involved at church… this can’t be stressed enough, apparently.
1 Corinthians 12:25
The way God designed our bodies is a model for understanding our lives together as a church: every part dependent on every other part, the parts we mention and the parts we don’t, the parts we see and the parts we don’t. If one part hurts, every other part is involved in the hurt, and in the healing. If one part flourishes, every other part enters into the exuberance.
so, you might be wondering what i mean by “hair is not a moral issue”… i’ll tell you what it means… this was from mr. gallion (bob). essentially, things like appearance and wardrobe choices are not moral issues, not enough to lose your relationship with your kid over… save your tough love for the big things-character issues, behavior choices, things of true consequence…makes great sense, huh?
