"We can be a lighthouse to grace for our children by offering them grace. Grace is not a replacement for correction or discipline. It is the manner in which you deliver these necessities to your children.
Are you accusing? Belittling? Exaggerating? Impatient?
All these lack grace.
Grace forgives. Grace walks alongside. Grace empowers and encourages. God is our beacon of grace and we need to allow His light to shine through us, to our children, so they will praise our Father in heaven–because of grace."
