I want my kids to have Christ-like character traits. I want them to be Christians. But sometimes, I am conforming them to Christianity, rather than letting Christianity transform them.
I read this over at Kristen's blog, We Are THAT Family, over the weekend, and it rather has me thinking that maybe I might be guilty of this too.
It is our role as parents to train our children both for this life and for the one that is to come, but we do it for the sake of their souls; not for the comfort of other people. I think I somehow lose sight of that.
Have a look at Kristen's post and then tell me what you think. Are you guilty of conforming your kids as well? I'd be really interested in your opinions on this one...I persecuted my poor husband with my thoughts about it all of yesterday.
