Did you ever marvel at how quickly and intensely you began to love your kids when they were born? Being a parent is often described as the purest and most unselfish love humans have to offer. Although it is tough, every parent knows good discipline is really just a reflection of this love. We follow through with consequences in the face of our kids’ anger because we know short-term peace is not as important as long term maturity.

The love we have for our children, as powerful as it is, is just a faint reflection of God’s love for us. Our parenting journey gives us a unique appreciation for God’s fatherly characteristics. In this way, we are better able to understand the deep love for us that motivates His discipline.

Parenting is a unique insight into the great depth of God’s love.
