If any Parent is in Christ ...

Dr. Eric Johnson recently spoke at SEEDS on what he called, Parent Theology.  This quote is worth meditating on:

Christian parents have to build their self-understanding on who they are in Christ, not on the quality of their parenting.  This is more important than learning child-rearing techniques, because it changes entirely the framework of our child-rearing, moving us from performance-based living into grace-based living.

The great challenge of Christian parenting is learning to rest in our perfection in Christ and not be consumed with our performance or the performance of our children.
