“I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians 1:6
Last week I challenged all who are parents to be the first and most important spiritual teachers to their kids. It was old news to some and alarming to others. I, too, am sometimes alarmed by the enormity of the task we’ve been given.
I have more history of messing up God’s plan, or at least rerouting it at times, than carrying it through to completion. At least, when left to my own abilities.
Today, I have a good comforting word for you: God is okay with your having the task of teaching your kids about him and his goodness. He designed the process, knows us deeply and somehow is still willing to let our inadequacies work alongside his sufficiency.
