About This Episode

There’s so much to teach our children while they are still young. Our goal is to help them become independent adults that can fend for themselves when we are no longer there, as well as help them learn the skills necessary to make a good spouse for someone else someday. But as we teach our children how to fold laundry, mow the grass, make rice, and throw out garbage, we should also remember to teach them kindness, generosity and the sacrificial aspect of love. Making the other person a priority is more than checking off lists, it involves denying our own desires for the well-being of the other. As we help our children become successful adults, let’s not forget to spend the majority of our resources giving them an example of what love truly looks like.
