Episode Summary

We all get discouraged about our parenting at times. This episode will encourage you in how to be the kind of leader that helps mold kids with great moral character. There is one thing that you’ve got to do well to build long-lasting trusting relationships with your kids. You’ve got to become good at admitting when you are wrong. Learn more in this episode.

Parenting is one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences in life. It can be easy to get discouraged by your kid’s behavior and even wonder if you can do this parenting thing well. Remember God purposely gave you your kids but he doesn’t expect you to do it alone. He’s right there to be the most important influence on your parenting, your relationship with your kids, and influencing their hearts towards righteousness.

But a major mistake parents make is letting their kids see their humility by admitting when they are wrong. It’s easy to say follow me when we are doing things right, but it can be so hard to say don’t follow my example when we make a mistake. But those are actually some of the most powerful moments with your kids that you want them to follow after, admission of being wrong.

You want your kids to see their need for Jesus right? Well, how can they if they are led by someone who acts like they are perfect? This episode should be a big encouragement to you as you navigate your current parenting situations.

Scripture In This Episode:

Ephesians 2:8-9 –For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”

Psalm 127:3-4 –Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth.”

1 Timothy 3:1-7 –The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.”

1 Peter 2:2 – “Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation.”

2 Timothy 1:5 – “I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.”

Deuteronomy 11:19 – “You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.”

1 Corinthians 1:27-3 – “But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong;”
