- www.onemillionarrows.com A great parenting resource to help parents launch children that will change the world.
As I learn about how we should be discipling our children, I see some things we've done right and that makes me smile and praise God. I also see so many things we've done wrong. I lay those areas before the foot of the cross. His grace is sufficient for our failures. His grace is sufficient for my weaknesses.
This discipling process shouldn't be static. It should be full of change. As the Spirit exposes areas of your parenting where you fall short, repent and prayerfully make the needed changes. I'll be the first to say that it will be hard. Your kids may resent it. Sometimes spouses don't agree. Ask the Lord to give you patience and grace during these transitions. Keep your eyes on the goal: making followers of Jesus. We can fully trust Him to work out all these details if we commit ourselves to Him. He is a heart changer and truth revealer.
I pray that the Lord would give us all wisdom, courage and strength to " make disciples" of our children.
