Love Letter for Our Children
How often do we indirectly tell our kids that we love them more when they get good grades or have success on the athletic field? One of our middle school moms sent me a link to a powerful blog post from a pastor who is also a parent. In his post, Jong Park honestly tells how he responded to his daughter who failed to get into an honors program at school. He reflected on this experience and wrote the following powerful love letter for his children:
You are not loved because you are the best
You are not loved because you tried your best
You are loved because you are mine — my blood, my flesh, my heart
This is powerful stuff! Imagine the amazing impact if our children felt this kind of unconditional love! This is the same love that our Father has for us. You can read more of Jong’s post here.
