The Day I Stung my Son’s Heart with my Quick Tongue

    Yes. All of this. God has been teaching me many of these same things with my littles. I am constantly amazed how the attitude of my heart is reflected in them. How wonderful it is that God can use my failures as a mother to teach them what it means to need a savior. I am so thankful for the opportunity to walk in repentance in front if my kids.

    Erin, as my children have grown and off, I remember many days of my tongue getting the best of me and of course it was my heart. We are not infallible and we do make so many mistakes but remember that with ” I’m sorry” comes the love that your instilled in your little ones heart who forgives without a second thought, that is Christ and you are doing a great job of teaching that. Showing love and forgiveness and mercy shows the love of Christ. Keep doing what you
    are doing teaching, loving and giving them Christ. My son Michael’s life verse was Romans 5:1-5 “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulations produces perseverance, and perseverance, character,and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Keep going Erin you will make mistakes, but, the Love of the Lord will shine through.
