I will always be an advocate for children.
As a mom, educator, Christian, and owner of a nonprofit that supports kiddos it’s kind of my MO, and I will never shy away from it.
Here’s the thing though, y’all – standing up for what’s right won’t always make you popular. I’m cool with that. I don’t need anyone’s approval but God’s.
It doesn’t matter whether you are at school, a sporting event, church, or your home, it’s up to you to create an environment that’s based on Christian values. An environment based on love.
Kids deserve nothing less.
Kids don’t deserve to see ugly, to hear ugly, or to be exposed to ugly. It’s our job to not be ugly. It’s hard – I get it. But that’s why self-control is a fruit of the spirit. Being a Christian IS NOT EASY.
We are the adults, and we are modeling the behavior that these youngins will perceive to be correct. How we act now is how they will act later. Let’s be better for future generations. It’s up to us.
So here’s my question: are we modeling appropriate behaviors based on Biblical truth, or are we letting our flesh take over causing us to spew ugliness from our mouths?
I have a husband, family, and a wonderful tribe of friends that hold me accountable. I hope you do, too.
Let’s do better.
Let’s be better.
Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. Galatians 6:9
