This is what I’m talking about. All that stuff Jesus said about mercy and love and anger HAVE to apply to our relationships with our kids. I am going to keel over with absolute shock if I get to heaven and God is chastising parents for not being mean enough to their kids. Let’s take the same mercy and love and forgiveness that we show to others around us and let’s show it to our kids. If God believes these traits are important to human interaction, let’s not let our fear of Him being wrong (and therefore our kids turning in to monsters) stand between us and following God. Amen?
