Are You Insane?
If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times—that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. Who came up with this? I’ve never seen it in the dictionary described this way; so, I challenge it.
Doesn’t practice make perfect? Doing the right thing over and over again—regardless of the result—is always the right thing—and you should eventually expect a different result—a good result.
The same is true when raising our kids. Scripture says we should never cease in doing good—and that certainly applies to raising our kids. Otherwise, loving them, exercising discipline, and praying for our kids would all qualify us for the nuthouse.
