The Gnawing Feeling
Having a rough week with your kids? Peter Ustinov understood something of the pain of raising kids. “Parents,” he said, “are the bones on which children cut their teeth.” Sometimes it feels as if they’re gnawing away at you and there’s no escape. But that’s only part of parenting. If we live in a way that shows them how to honor God, then we may get the blessing of watching them walk with Him. “The LORD was with Jehoshaphat because he followed in his ancestor David’s footsteps at the beginning of his reign.” (2 Chr. 17:3) Hang in there. The teething season doesn’t last forever.
