Parenting - Lessons About God

This is the fourth installment of "39 Lessons, 20 Tips and 10 "Don'ts" For Parenting" by Matt & Elizabeth Schmucker from the most recent edition of 9Marks E-Newsletter on Family and Parenting. Here are lessons 37-39 in which the Schumakers share what they have learned about God as parents:

37. Prayer is a mighty weapon to use in the life of your children - i
t changes the parent's approach to the child and it softens the hard-hearted child.

38. God uses children as a mirror to your own heart to expose your sin and hypocrisy.

39. God elects. God saves. Parents cannot do this heart-changing work. At best we can pray and point to the One who can cause our children to be born again.
