REFLECT:

  • In your own upbringing, how did you experience guilt or fear? How did you experience forgiveness and freedom?
  • What are some scenarios or moments in your own parenting that you’re tempted to use guilt or fear, and how did this lesson speak to that tendency?
  • What would it look like for God’s good work toward you in Christ to impact your responses to your children?
