Series: Christian Parenting Today Bible Study
Move your children from being self-focused to being God-focused.
We ve all seen those motivational posters such as the one with a drop of water causing a ripple effect that reads: Attitude: a little thing that makes a big difference. You can now buy de-motivational posters, such as the one of a sinking ship that reads: Mistakes: It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others. While funny, it s a reminder as if we needed one that our culture has perfected the put-down. It s no wonder that we misplace the basis for our confidence, and even easier to see how children and adolescents in our culture would struggle with the same. This study, based on Jennifer Mangan s article in CHRISTIAN PARENTING TODAY, will explore how to foster a God-centered self-concept in our children.
