This is one of a series of posts I intend for my sons and their peers to read. I had difficult teen age years. Looking back, I am thinking I could have avoided a lot of heart aches if I only knew the things I know now. I cannot turn back time but I can help the teenagers of today go thru this difficult phase with a little more wisdom. It will be good if you can share this post so I can reach my intended audience.
There is a huge difference between the believer living by faith and the person who thinks he has faith and then works his way to heaven.
Each child is different. They have different talents and skills. They have different strengths and weaknesses. They also go thru different seasons – high and low, each season will inevitably shape their character. It would be wise to come alongside them and teach them how to respond to each season. This is probably a “high” season for most of them since this is the time when they receive their awards from school. I am using this season to teach Ethan about humility.
