Kids pick up on stuff. They see the heart of it and aren’t smart enough yet to know we’re just not talking about it. They see what’s important, not because we say it’s important, but because we live that way.
They know that even though mommy and daddy say they trust Jesus they get really worried and stressed about money. They hear about loving and being nice but hear the fights and arguments from the other room that are anything but loving and nice. They catch on to that stuff.
What are showing your kids then? Are you showing them a man or woman who knows Jesus is in control? Are you showing them someone who believes what Jesus said and turns the other cheek? Is our life teaching and showing our kids dependence on Christ or something else?
