ENDURANCE

If parenting is about imitating the Perfect Parent, we should be comforted in knowing God patiently endured as His Son was subjected to unimaginable hardship (curses, rejection, beatings, and death) on our behalf. There will be times when you will be forced to endure sleepless nights, frustration, anger, shame, and the scorn of others in your parenting journey as well.

In the middle of suffering, fix your eyes on Jesus. Recognize that as much as we try to avoid pain, it can be a pathway to wisdom and greater dependence on God. The love you express to your kids during times of struggle can draw them to a much greater love — the love of our Heavenly Father and the sacrifice He made through His Son’s life and death.

When you endure parenting hardships and struggles with patience, you reflect God’s love in a powerful, compelling way.

Hebrews 12:2
