If you believe that your good parenting + God’s Will = godly children…

If you believe that sheltering your children will insure that they have advantages and will make it more likely they will have godly lives…

If you are training your children to obey, be polite, or to behave well in public because you believe it equals godliness, on your part or theirs…

If you are bearing the weight of parenting by believing your actions will determine your child’s future….

then… I beg you to read the book Give Them Grace.  The truth this book shares shows these beliefs for what they are: wrong.  The freedom this book reveals is what God intends it to be: hope giving.  The lack of tasks you are supposed to do that are not shared in this books proves what we are to be: dependent.

“…(P)arenting is NOT a covenant of works.”  p159 (emphasis mine)

Don’t believe for one minute that it is.

There really is nothing like grace.

This book has opened my eyes to it even more and I’ve never been so grateful for grace!
