Are You Tolerating Or Investing In Your Kids?
I had the privilege of listening to and meeting Phil Downer at a conference this weekend. Here are two of his great quotes in regards to parenting:
"Discipline without a strong personal relationship leads to rebellion."
"If you are a Christian family that is operating with love and devotion to each other and the Lord as a discipleship ministry team, then you have the most effective outreach resource around... More than ever, people are impressed when they see a loving Mom and Dad and kids. Such a family sticks out and appeals to the longing God put in us all for loving relationships."
Question: Are you proactively discipling your kids through a close relationship, or are you just tolerating them?
