And in order to not have spoiled kids, parents must discipline their children.
Give them consequences that sink in deep enough that there won't be a next time.
This weekend is my son's first prom and he isn't able to go.
And honestly, it's killing me.
When I think of all the fun he'll be missing out on it breaks my heart.
I want to put the consequences on hold and just tell him to go and make good memories and choices this time, but I know this season of discipline is best for him.
He's my only son and I have thought of the day where he'd be dressed in a tux looking handsome. And then I'd make him mad at me because I want just one more picture of him and his beautiful date. But because of his choices I'm stuck with heartache instead of pictures and probably a teenager that will try his best to be unpleasant.
This has me thinking of all the choices I've made as an adult and I wonder...
what have I missed out on from my Father?
What plans has God had for me that I sabatoged for nothing and had miserable consequences instead of blessing?
Oh Lord...forgive me, nothing is worth choosing sin over You.
If Aaron is rude this weekend, perhaps I'll try squeezing into my prom dress from the 80's and ask him to dance with me.
That should adjust his attitude.
