Just what do we want most for our kids? Good health, material success, a happy family, a fulfilling career?
Or to be world-opposing slaves of King Jesus.
A dose or reality in our hopes for raising children here from Adam Griffin.
If you’re like me and hope for your kids to be fully devoted followers of Christ, then we need to be raising up a generation who is ready to be distinctly different from their peers. In a lot of ways, that’s the opposite of my natural inclination in how to raise my son. Raising kids who are ready to be hated means raising kids who unashamedly love God even in the face of loathing and alienation. Regardless if the insults of the world are naive or legitimate, I pray our children will be ready to stand firm in the midst of a world that hates them.
