A 10 Point Strategy For Training Kids, by Willie George (via Twitter)

Every kid needs training. Some are easier. Some are fence-pushers. They're not evil just because they need correction. Most parents miss it by being inconsistent. Child-training is a long-haul game & good parenting is not a magic wand! Don't let your kids see you panic. If you don't know what to do with them, don't show it. There's always an answer!


#1- See each child as a gift from God. God doesn't give us kids we can't develop!
#2- Teach them the things of God. Kids learn in bits & pieces-not marathon sessions
#3- Correct them when they do wrong. Do it calmly, not in anger. Proverbs 22:8
#4- Reward them when they do right. Reward character more than talent!
#5- Teach them how to work. Let them earn money for the things they want. Inspect jobs!
#6- Do not undermine the authority you put them under. Support teachers, coaches, etc...
#7- Know what & who they are being exposed to. Some church members don't have your values.
#8- Participate in & help them with their interests. I built bike ramps, forts, etc...
#9- Claim God's promises for them. This saved my daughter's life. Know verses!
#10- Close the door on iniquity in your own life. What you allow finds your kids!

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care!
