Keys for Kids

Parent Minute

The problems are fewer, but they’re bigger.

Posted on 3/5/2018 by Greg Yoder

Our kids are adults. They have kids of their own. A lot of us dreamed about this. Happily married. Grandchildren. Utopia, right? Wrong. While our kids have good jobs, a spouse, and have those prized grandchildren we love, divorce, sickness, and abandoning their faith can be defeating. These are problems that many times we can’t help with. We can only come alongside our kids and cry with them, hold their hand, wrap our arms around them, and pray with them. No matter your situation, remind yourself that God is in control. There isn’t a reason things are happening, but maybe 15,000 reasons they’re happening. What’s most important? Be faithful, be supportive, look to God for guidance, and be ready to share your faith.

Suggested Reading: Matthew 11:28, 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
