Guilt Free Parenting

1 Pet. 2:24: He Himself (Christ) bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness;by his wounds you have been healed" (NIV).

In today's culture, we often hear that guilt is a bad thing. Pop psychology suggests it is a result of low self-esteem. But, sometimes guilty feelings are simply the natural result of our sin!

How can fallen parents living in a fallen world escape the tyranny of guilty feelings? By embracing the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. There is nothing more freeing than confessing our sin and recognizing that Christ's sacrifice on the cross has healed us! We break out of the bondage that comes with guilt by trusting in the cleansing work of our Savior. 

We will often make mistakes in parenting. Don't let those mistakes draw you away from God. Take time to confess, die to sin, and live in righteousness!
