What The Bible Says About Parenting: Looking at Our Children Through God’s Eyes

There can be a real temptation for parents to delight in our kids’ abilities that make us feel good about ourselves or that make us look impressive.

“Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” Looking at the example of Jesse and his sons, Cameron and Anna discuss how parents can focus on outward appearances and overlook a child’s heart. Parents must learn to resist labeling children, to ask God for help seeing our children clearly, and to focus on developing godly character rather than outward appearances.
