Keys for Kids

I have three kids, but one I just don’t understand.

Posted on 10/19/2017 by Greg Yoder

It seems like in every family there’s one kid that just makes us wonder. Do you know what I’m talking about? You know, maybe you’re a family of extroverts, and little Alex is quiet and in a world all his own. Or, maybe you have a household of intellectuals, but Sophia? She just wants to kick a soccer ball around and HATES school. Or, maybe your son or daughter has a unique way of dressing that’s just a little off. It’s easy for our kids to feel marginalized or unloved. We need to make sure that we’re celebrating their differences, not teasing them because they’re so different. Scripture’s clear—we’re uniquely and wonderfully made. Teaching our kids this helps them feel loved, but also helps them to love others.

Suggested Reading: Psalm 139:14, Isaiah 64:8
