Some parents amaze me! I guess you can take that statement two ways huh?
We need parents who are willing to be a backbone for their children and not the wishbone.
We need parents who love their love children more than themselves but not more than God.
We needs parents who teach their children about hard work and not how to work hard avoiding it.
We need parents who spend time with their children instead of their child-like hobbies.
We needs parents who know how to say ‘I’m sorry’ as much as they expect to hear it from their children. Talk about having to be strong!
You don’t have to tell me how tough it is to be a parent at times! All I know is that there are times when “tough love” actually leads to tender hearts, and that the world will be a whole lot tougher on them if they’re not prepared to love God with all their heart, mind, soul and strength! That takes toughness; only the kind of toughness that comes from strong mom and dads.
Don’t give up, give in, give out or give it a second thought when it comes to making a hard decision that places morality above popularity. Give thanks for the life of your child and for the strength that God will provide to help you be strong!
