My favorite book on the subject of Christian parenting, revisited. I read through Grace-Based Parenting several years ago but I am seeing it and hearing it and taking it all in a different light after the trials of these past two years.
Balance. Grace motivates us to a higher holiness, but legalism demands we maintain a relationship with God through obedience to a standard.
Truth here: "The graceless home requires kids to be good and gets angry and punishes them when they are bad. The grace-based home assumes kids will struggle with sin and helps them learn how to tap into God's power to help them get stronger. Grace understands that the only real solution for our children's sin is the work of Christ on their behalf."
I'm not sure why, but those of you reading my posts in a reader can't see the Amazon button for books that I post. Sorry about that.
