Good Example

Being a parent is a huge responsibility. Parents provide food, clothing and shelter for their children. But that’s not all that parents should do for their children. Parents also need to set a good example for their children to follow.
The writer of Psalm 51 asked God to forgive his sin and make him clean again. “Because of your great compassion, erase all the wrongs I have done. Scrub away my guilt. Wash me clean from my sin” (verses 1b-2). An important part of being a parent is admitting that we sin and asking for forgiveness.
As parents, we need to set a good example of humility and forgiveness. When we make a mistake, we need to admit it and ask for forgiveness. When our children make mistakes, we need to love them and forgive them.
