A Parent's Goal

Written by KCC Devotion Team  |  Found in: Family

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.” Ephesians 5:1 (ESV)

As parents, we are to relate to our children just as God relates to us as His children. The Bible serves as our manual for parenting instruction that is both current and seasoned. God has goals and plans for each of us as His children just as we have goals for our earthly children. God’s goals for us include that we be conformed to the image of Christ by growing in love for God Himself and for others in their obedience to God. It is a parent’s goal to see their child grow up to love God and to love others with all their hearts spreading and sharing this love in everything that they do and say as a testimony of God’s goodness. It can be difficult to focus on goals and what is best for our children, but God shows us how to remain focused on the projected outcome by focusing on Him.
