Last week, another school shooting killed 17 people and increased the nation’s conversation about violence in our schools. As parents, our job is to teach truth in love. We all know guns, knives, cars—or whatever other items that people use to kill people—don’t act on their own. People do. Should we pass people-law legislation? Mom and Dad, remember that the Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Sin winning the war in someone’s heart is what killed 17 people. What does that mean for our kids? Satan is evil. Sin separates us from God. God’s grace, through the sacrifice of Christ, redeems us from our sin and evil. Use events like these to teach truth to our kids. They need to know.
