How Imperfections Teach God’s Grace:

Parents often think that they must be perfect in raising and educating their children, but the reality of being human is that not one of us is perfect: we all need grace (parents and kids alike).

Don’t let failures dampen the flame in your heart. Instead, remind yourself that your imperfections and mistakes can be some of your greatest strengths. Your child will gain valuable knowledge and understanding when he sees your ability to work through your imperfections with God by your side.

When you make a mistake, steward the opportunity to set a reinforcing example for your child. When you ask for forgiveness and humble yourself before God, you are teaching your child humility. When you seek out guidance and answers in God’s word, you are setting an example of faith and demonstrating a willingness to learn. As you try out new solutions, you teach your child innovation and creativity. And as you pull yourself up and show your willingness to try again, you demonstrate perseverance and determination. Through your experiences, you can show your child that mistakes are steppingstones on the road to a successful life of service as a parent, a friend, and a professional.

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

As you homeschool your children, continually thank God for his grace, knowing that God will work through your weaknesses just as he does your strengths. Through it all, your child’s faith will grow deeper because he will see evidence of God’s grace at work.
