Parenting Via Perfection

The notion of parenting via perfection is a myth. When parents say “We are not perfect,” they are merely echoing a false sentiment. No one expects parental perfection. What the Bible demands is parental faithfulness. Faithfulness turns father’s hearts to hurting sons/daughters. Perfection is a myth. Faithfulness is the way of the kingdom. The clearest path to faithfulness is when parents embrace the life of repentance before their children. You can carry the excuse of not being perfect to cover your mistakes/anger or you can carry the faithfulness model and repent before your own children and assert again and again that this home is a place for people that need Jesus daily, and of those, I am most consistently in need of Him.
