"Oh, the arrogant pride of thinking that by our 'good parenting' we can take credit for what you alone can graciously do in the lives of our children. Oh, the arrogant unbelief of assuming that by our 'bad parenting' we’ve forever limited what you’ll be able to accomplish in the future.
"Oh, the undue pressure our children must feel when we parent more out of fear than faith; more out of rules than relationship; more out of and pride than patience; more out of comparison than covenant; more out of threats than theology. Forgive us. Free us. Focus us...teach us how to care for them as humble stewards, not as anxious owners."
All I can add is a heartfelt Amen.
