Who cares if our kids are happy. Do they have peace? Do they have the kind of peace that cannot be understood?
Feelings of happiness only come from the fleeting circumstances of this world but when we teach our children who God is, that is where peace comes from. After all, He is the God of peace.
Our children are not ours. They have to leave us one day and when we leave our kids with the peace that comes from Jesus, we have nothing to worry about for them because they will be able to find comfort in their knowledge of who God is.
Do not teach your children to figure out who they are but instead teach your children to figure out who God is.
Phillippians 4:6-7 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
May this bring you hope.
