The Goal of Parenting

When raising a family goal an appropriate goal might be…

Children

  • Who are relating lovingly and openly to their family and the world
    • Integrating godly wisdom of the parents and other mentors
      • Into living faithfully and
        • While loving and serving the King and his Kingdom.

I believe guiding children to maturity is a work of balance. Each of these characteristics can be impeded by barriers. These barriers are real, variable and opposite motivation.

The barriers are:

Strength Barrier To The Goal of Weakness Barrier
Self centeredness Relating lovingly Fearful attitude
False self confidence Integrating godly wisdom Low self image
Knowledge without love Living faithfully Love without knowledge
Misplaced vision Loving and serving the King No vision
