Gospel-Positive Correction

Written by:   |  Found in: Parenting  |  No Comments »
Grace Based Parenting

  When your child sins, can you correct him in a positive manner? Can you rebuke his actions in a way that  affirms him in Christ?   Of course, there is nothing fun about disciplining and correcting our children. But we can use it as a tool to communicate God’s truth, and even to encourage […]
