“I will consider myself a failure if my obsession and passion in life is to see my kids get straight A’s in their academic lives and had no interest in their spiritual development”
– McDaniels Gyamfi –
Fathers, don’t exasperate your children by coming down hard on them. Take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the Master. – Ephesians 6:4 MSG
Perfectly said Sir. Indeed,it is my biggest fear and I try hard to put them in line with God. 🙂
Thanks my sister. God is your strength and wisdom
That is so true. I’ve seen so many parents obsessed with their kid’s grades, excelling at sports, trying to live vicariously through them, but not the least bit concerned about their spiritual development. Or they drive them so hard legalistically in church life rather than Christ’s life so that they reject it all when they become adults. It’s a big trap. Thanks for sharing this. Blessings.
Thanks Pastor Mel for throwing light on this. Shalom!
