You’ve always heard that it’s what’s on the inside that counts…and it’s TRUE! Good character is what compensates for weaknesses, redeems brokenness, and increases potential. Many of the parenting tools and advice available today focus completely on behavior modification. Unfortunately, this only addresses the surface of the problem and not the cause. Grace Based Parents build character into their children from the inside out. When we focus on the heart, the behavior will follow. Most parents want their child to go through childhood right. Grace Based Parents want children who turn out right.
Building character into our children sets them up to be better siblings, more responsible students. It also prepares them to be better spouses and parents. It paves the way for them to become believers who rely upon God’s power to live out their faith.
