The apparent noble pursuit of making our kids the most important thing in our lives could be one of the greatest parenting mistakes we could ever make.
What if, in order to set your family up for success, you have to minimize the importance you place on your child? We discuss this in today’s post.
You Shall Have No Other Gods Before Me
As much as we love our kids, putting anything before God Himself, by definition, is an act of idolatry. And we all know what idolatry means for the idolator.
Yes, children are a blessing from the Lord; but when the blessings become to us a greater value than the One Who actually gives the blessing, we put the cart before the horse.
This is exactly what many of us have done when raising our kids. So, let’s keep the main thing the main thing and watch God’s blessing manifest in our lives and in the lives of our kids—a biblical recipe for success.
