Reflections 

(Part 1) Prov. 3:5-6: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight (NIV).

Sometimes we ask God to give us wisdom in making parenting decisions, but we really just want Him to rubber-stamp our plans and desires. Unfortunately, we may not realize the degree to which our desires are influenced by a culture that glorifies money, power, beauty, and fame.

The key to knowing God's will is knowing God. Therefore, the first step is to learn about His character and purposes. They are usually in direct opposition to the character and purposes of the world! Keep in mind that our hearts are deceitful (Jer. 17:9) and we must lean on the Holy Spirit, speaking to us through prayer and Bible study, to expose areas where we may be rationalizing selfish motives. 

When you know the character of God, His will for your family will become clearer.
