The Heart of Behavior

Proverbs 4:23 - "Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life."
The behavior a person exhibits is an expression of the overflow of the heart....
...parenting is concerned with shepherding the heart. You must learn to work from the behavior you see, back to the heart, exposing heart issues for your children. In short, you must learn to engage them, not just reprove them.
-Tedd Tripp
Colossians 2:8 - "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ."
The question you must ask is this: Are the values in your home based on human tradition and the basic principles of this world, or on Christ?
-Tedd Tripp
Lord, help us to create a home that is honoring to you, a place where your name is lifted up. Grant us wisdom as we seek to raise Caleb to know you, and to grow in your ways, not the ways of this world. Amen.
