Words. They can hurt. With our kids, they can be devastating. I remember losing my cool with my daughter. Not only did I get loud, but I said some hurtful things. To this day, she STILL remembers it. To this day, I’m still ashamed. Have you been there? I think we all have. Here’s the great news. God can use even THAT. First, go to your child and tell them what you did was wrong and confess it. Tell them it was sin and that even YOU can sin. Secondly, remind them that that’s why Jesus came—to provide the way to salvation to all who believe. Then, give them a huge hug. You’ll find kids are pretty forgiving. What’s the lesson? God uses ALL things for His good.
