How do dads measure their own success?

I. Children are responsible.

A. Even young children have spiritual understanding.

B. Obedience gives room for God’s blessing.

II. Without grace, dads exasperate their kids.

A. Children rebel when we try to control them.

B. Children resent when don’t set boundaries.

III. The goal of parenting is wisdom.

A. Life-long process of living and teaching gospel.

B. Showing the right way and correcting the wrong.

Chastening grace expects a holy response in that God is both merciful and just.

Graceful parents love their children and discipline them, neglecting neither.
