When your unmarried teen comes to you and tells you they’re pregnant, your heart sinks. You’re scared. They’re scared. You’re angry. You’re upset. The tears fall. You know it’s going to be difficult. As a parent, you know the challenges. As a follower of Christ, you know God’s got this, but there’s so much uncertainty. Lots of decisions will have to be made, but right now you can show unconditional love or a judgmental spirit. Nothing can prepare you for this, but God will give you the strength to make it through. If your son or daughter isn’t living for the Lord, let your example of love lead them back to Jesus. Can you make it? My wife and I did, and today we have a son and daughter-in-law—and two grandkids—who love Jesus.
