More on Lazy Parenting

Continuing thoughts from a post earlier in the year . . .

Too often as parents, we (and I am more guilty than anyone) have our goal to make life easier for ourselves. I want my kids to do good not because it is honoring to God, but because then I don't have to deal with them.

Ugh. How lazy of me. But I'm thankful that God continually makes me aware of this self-oriented perspective. 

I have to realize that gospel-oriented parenting is as much about me making a disciple of my child as it is God using my children to draw me closer to him.
