Keys for Kids

Parent Minute

Our kids are different.

Posted on 9/24/2016 by Greg Yoder

How many times have we tried to live our lives through our kids? You know what I’m talking about. We loved to play basketball, the piano, make crafts, so our kids should follow in our footsteps. Who doesn’t want our kids to be successful and enjoy the same things that we’ve enjoyed in our lives? But, what if they don’t like playing basketball—but would rather play soccer? Or, maybe they’re tone-deaf, and they’re better working with wood than a keyboard. The first rule of thumb is to let them have fun. Try different things. I loved ALL sports, but I wasn’t a very good athlete in any of them. And that’s going to be the case for most of our kids. What’s the lesson? “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.” 

Suggested Reading: Colossians 3:23-24
