Week 9 Verse – This One’s For The Parents

Have you ever had one of those times where you question whether you’re a good parent?  Where you wonder just how effective you really are?  Well,  welcome to my week.  I love my kids and I know they love me but for some reason the past week has been a struggle.

With that in mind I turned to my Bible looking for a little guidance.  That’s when I came across Proverbs 22:6 (MSG).

Point your kids in the right direction – when they’re old they won’t be lost.

That was the reassurance I needed.  I have been pointing them in the right direction.  If I hadn’t I wouldn’t be getting the push back lately. It also reinforced what I believe my priorities for parenting should be; parent first, friend second, everything else can follow.

After some prayer and reflection I see that having weeks like this are probably beneficial.  Questioning the job I’m doing as a parent from time to time is a good thing.  It means I care and want to be better… and anytime you care about something and work to be better at it you are already a long way down the path to success.
