Another Way to View Sibling Squabbles


"If godliness is your goal for your children, it is also wise to consider that interaction between siblings provides every opportunity for your children to display their natural self-centered characters, providing you with the corresponding opportunity to teach and train them to deny their base nature and embrace and demonstrate God's nature instead.

The next time your children bicker, instead of becoming angry and looking simply for a quick fix to stop the annoyance, rejoice that another opportunity has presented itself for you to teach them what true Christianity is: to love God and to love others as you love yourself."

  2. Bless your heart! This quote was printed and lived on my wall for a year early on. It seems so obvious now, but it was revolutionary for me years ago. Your blog is lovely; thanks for visiting here!
