Day 2 – Placing Identity on Your Kids
“Parents have a powerful ability to place identity and confidence into their children. Our words, time, attention, and affection will impact them for the rest of their lives. This requires a commitment. It requires stepping past your own insecurity and saying no to countless opportunities, but you will never regret taking time to show your children love and to affirm their identity.”
-Parenting Without Regret: Raising Kids with Purpose, Not Perfection
The way we use our time and give our affection to our kids shapes their identity in a big way, but it is our words we so often take lightly. Proverbs 18:21 says, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Our words give identity, good and bad, to our kids. Correction and discipline will be necessary at times, but God’s heart is for us as parents to also declare in alignment with His Word who they are created to be. We do not want to leave our children in condemnation when they do wrong.
