It's Not Up to Us
So you have a stubborn, rebellious child, and you’re feeling guilty for not having done enough? It might help to remember, you are only partially responsible for the outcome of your kids. God gave them a free will too, and they are responsible to yield it up to His control. So what do we do when they persist in their rebellion, despite your best efforts? “Commit your future to the LORD! Trust in him, and he will act on your behalf.” (Psalm 37:5) The Lord loves you and he loves your kids – even the hard-headed ones. Trust him. He will do what’s right, and what’s best for both of you.
