Does your teen struggle to like you?
If there’s one thing that will turn our kids away from us, and our God, it’s hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is one reason why your teen does not like you, or others who say they are Christian and don’t really follow Christian principles.
To the degree that we can be consistent in walking what we’re talking, that will be the degree that our kids will buy into our biblical view of the world.
This only comes to the degree that we submit ourselves to our Lord Jesus Christ first and foremost.
Because, without a strong relationship with Christ, hypocrisy is universal – both in and outside the church.
As Christian parents, we’ll take a greater amount of heat in this area – simply because we claim a better way over our secular counterparts. So, in a sense, we’re living in a fishbowl. But, that’s actually a good thing. It’s called accountability.
