Parent Minute

My neighbor thinks we’re bad people.

Posted on 10/14/2020 by Greg Yoder

I was visiting with a neighbor friend who believes and votes differently than I do, we’re still friends though. He said the neighbor girl told his little girl that they’re bad people because of the way they vote. I know the parents, and they’d be crushed if they knew what was being said. But, as Christians, we need to be careful what we say around our kids because they don’t have that filter. And that can cause insurmountable relationship damage that could prevent us from sharing Christ. When we talk about our faith and why we vote the way we do, remember our kids are watching and listening. Saying things like, “Our faith helps us decide,” or “we want to honor God with our actions,” might be a better way to help our kids with discernment.

Suggested Reading: Philippians 1:9-10
