The Gospel in Parenting~Piper

We are all better, praise God.

With my mind being pretty much consumed in thoughts on parenting I want to share these encouraging videos by one of my favorite preachers, John Piper. Sometimes I think that it is easy to put to much emphases on the law and not on the gospel, on works and not on grace, on discipline and not on training, on ourselves and our anger and not on God and His mercy and love. There has to be a balance between them, but most importantly we as parents need to realize that the gospel should be the foundation of all our parenting efforts.

Spankings don't save kids...

The gospel saves kids...

JOYfully in Him,
