Hug Jesus

Jesus Embraced Parenting

Sometimes life doesn’t always make sense. There are times when it gets hard, it hurts, and it’s confusing. As parents that can be tough to deal with in our own lives, but it’s even harder when the difficulty has to do with our child. We don’t always have an answer for the problems, but we do have the comfort of a hug, We love them through the pain and difficulties because that’s what parents do.

Even more important than being there for our kids, is helping them to understand that Jesus is there with them too. We won’t always be there over the years ahead but their Lord will be, so it’s important for us as parents to show them that Jesus is real, wants to hear from them, and is ready to offer comfort and guidance.

One of the fruits of the spirit is love., so we want to nurture that in our kids. We want them to learn how to love God, starting with accepting him as their Lord and savior. We want our kids to realize how much God cares about them and how much he has done for them:

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

1 John 4:9-10 NIV

We invite others to join us in discovering what it’s like to be a Christian parent who teaches and models God’s truth to their kids. Jesus Embraced Parenting asks tough questions at times, but it is so worth learning how to help our children grow spiritually.

God bless,
