Have you noticed a child struggling to understand what matters most in life; is it friends, style, or entertainment? Does this uncertainty about who or what is important come intrinsically to your child, or does its source come from a little closer to home.
Parents, we must measure how much the shallow desires of the world affect our lifestyle and decisions. By adding substance to life, we are able to give our kids a clear view of what matters most.
Adding Substance to Life
Today, kids have a hard enough time keeping it real; they don’t need plastic parents who put a greater premium on style than on substance. In this day of easy credit, it’s easy to live beyond our means and lose focus on real priorities. This lifestyle creates hollow people that cultivate Hollywood-like superficial relationships.
Unfortunately, this hollowness affects our kids. Proverbs 12:9 says, “Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant than pretend to be somebody and have no food.” Kids see through the facade of parents buying things they don’t need, with money they don’t have, to impress people they don’t even like. So, if you truly mean to live, live within your means.
