Parents! We don’t have a problem child. What we do have is an ungrateful heart.
A child is God’s gift to us by grace. We did nothing to deserve a child who is precious and beautiful in every way.
Children are here to help us to grow up, to be mature and nurturing adults, and to live our full potential as human beings.
If we refuse to grow up, refuse to accept that they are here to teach us, to challenge us, instead, we bully them, blame them to be the problem of our arrogance, ignorance and obstinacy, to label them to be the problem child, we are in fact the biggest loser.
In our childish and foolish ways, we get into competition with our own flesh and blood, we grow jealous of their innocence, wisdom and talents. We are unable to humble ourselves to let our children to try, to shine, and to thrive. We wonder why we grow harsh, stone hearted and despair. It is impossible to please an ungrateful heart.
Love our children as they first love us unconditionally. 💕
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. – Psalm 127:3
