Parent Minute

How valuable are your children to you, really?

Posted on 9/23/2017 by Greg Yoder

A cartoon showed two women in business suits—briefcase in hand, waiting for the bus. One said to the other: “Better the rat race than the brat race.” This says it all, doesn’t it? Better to chase dollars than change diapers. Really? Better to shape corporate culture than your child’s character? I know there are a lot of families where both parents have to work, or you’re a single parent. Research says that’s not always easy, but it’s reality. My caution to you is to make quality time for your kids. Money and possessions won’t follow us to heaven. But our children can. In any situation, it’s up to the Holy Spirit, but, if we’re pointing them to Christ at every turn, that training will have lasting impact.

Suggested Reading: Proverbs 1:8-10
