Discipline. It’s a part of life if you’re a parent. It’s the tool God created to help form our kids inside and out. Have your kids gotten so out of control that your discipline was done out of anger and not out of love? Yes, the love was—deep down—in there, but was your anger more visible? As parents, we’ve all been frustrated by our kids. When you get to that point of frustration, remember how God views us. He knows, apart from Christ, we won’t want to obey Him. Yet, He lovingly sent His perfect Son to die for us. When your son or daughter makes poor choices and you’re on the edge, remember what God did for you. Hopefully, it’ll help.
