Parents: You Aren’t Your Child’s Messiah

January 12, 2011

If you feel exhausted from the impossible task called parenting, you need to read this article from Paul David Tripp.

That night I began to find joy in the impossibility of it all. The task is way bigger than our ability us as parents, but we are not our children’s messiah, and we are not left to the resources of our own character, wisdom, and strength. Our children have a Messiah. He is with them and working in and through us. The wise heavenly Father is working on everybody in the scene, and he will not call us or them to a task without enabling us to do it.
