Even though I’m not a statistician, I feel pretty confident in the accuracy of this opinion: the number of morally perfect children is directly proportionate to the number of perfect parents, which is zero. As much as we like to brag about our children, the truth is that there are no perfect children. There can’t be, of course, because there are no perfect FamilyLifeSeriesparents. No matter how hard we try as parents, and despite our desires, we don’t always get it right. It’s frustrating and disappointing, but it’s also the reality we live with.

Fortunately, we don’t have to be perfect parents to raise great kids that are emotionally and spiritually healthy and well-adjusted. But that still doesn’t make it easy. If we want the best for our kids, though, we must be willing to put in the hard work, learn what we need to learn, and try what we need to give our kids the best. But how do you define “the best”? Join us this Sunday at Liberty Hill at 10:30 AM as I talk about the absolute best that we can give our kids, so that they truly can have things better than we did – or do.

Grace Received,
