It’s not exactly a Bible promise we like–at least not at first. Who wants to boast of weakness? Power and strength are what enamor us, especially when the task is our idea. When we’re operating in our own strength, who gets the credit? But when God gives power in weakness, who gets the glory?
Encouragement for parents and grandparents is always a welcome thing. We’re concerned about making wise decisions, aren’t we? Are we giving our kids the right training? Fear may try to consume us. Are they being bullied? Are they safe enough? We all want our kids to “turn out right.” At one time or another, we may think we’re not doing “enough” to prepare our kids for life.
