What's our goal as parents?

Posted on 1/14/2018 by Greg Yoder

In Galatians 5:22-23, Paul tells us, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control” (NIV). Today, kindness is the word we’re focusing on. I’m sure you’ve heard parents who have reached the breaking point of frustration, and they become so angry and unkind. I’m ashamed of those moments in my life. Let’s face it—emotional unkindness can be a violation of trust. Trust is something that’s earned. That was the thing that hurt the most in my situation is that I lost my daughter’s trust. Practice this fruit of the Spirit—kindness—often. As you do, you build trust and become an example to your kids.
