The Altar of Conformity

See Life Through Your Child's Eyes

"When a child knows that all his life you have sought to see the world through his eyes, he will trust you. When he knows that you have not tried to make him like you or like anybody else, but only sought to help him realize his full potential as a creature God made to know Him and live in the relationship of fellowship with Him, he will trust you."

Sharing Ourselves To Teach Sharing

"It takes an investment of time, thought, and energy to teach a child to willingly share with a cheerful heart. Most of all, it takes a real, live, loving example in front of them.

Are we willing to share with our children?
Do we cheerfully give of ourselves, or do our hearts say, “Mine!” when our little ones want or need our time and attention?

Do we communicate a begrudging, selfish attitude when we have to stop again to teach our children to not have begrudging, selfish attitudes?"
