Moulding Memories

Do you remember your childhood?

When you were a child….

  • Did you feel like you could always run up to your parents and get a hug and a kiss?
  • Did you want them to hold you for comfort?
  • Did you feel loved and secure?
  • Did you have assurance of your salvation?
  • When you sinned, were you confident of being forgiven?
  • Did you enjoy spending time with your parents?
Now that you are a parent….
  • How do you want your children to feel every day?
  • How do you want them to remember you?
  • How do you want them to remember their childhood?

What do you want your children to think about who God is and how He loves us?

    I have to say that in my childhood the answers to all those top questions would be yes. I have wonderful parents. They’re sinners obviously but by God’s grace they raised me well and always showed me God’s love.
    Now that I’m a parent, I want my children above all to know how much God loves them, and to learn to love God and others. I want them to remember me as pointing them to God. Not as a perfect person–if you think as a parent that your children view you as perfect, you delude yourself. Your children know when you have made mistakes. You have to be ready to admit them and ask their forgiveness. So I want to be remembered as humble–apologizing for my failings and pointing them to the God who will not fail them. As teaching them how to forgive. I want them to have good memories of feeling happy and secure during their childhood.
