15 Ways Grace Changes the Everyday Lives of Parents

00:00 / 46:38

In this episode, Karis and Michelle discuss different ways grace can change the everyday life of parents and couples. It’s not enough to just understand grace through the lens of saving grace. It’s important for us to see the way grace happens in the day to day practical moments of parenting.

The content of this episode is derived from a Family Matters resource called “The Grace List” that compares and contrasts an “obedience-based” approach to God with a “grace-based” approach to God.

Although obeying God is certainly a good thing and something all believers should desire to live out, we hope that through this comparison, you will see that obedience should come from an outflowing of love for God, not from obligation, fear or legalism.
