Legacy: Acceptance


Everyone craves acceptance. It seems we never get enough. When you give your children the opportunity to be themselves and to become what God wants them to be, you give them a great legacy. The welcoming environment of acceptance is the atmosphere in which kids bloom. Even though they're your children, acceptance is never automatic. You must be intentional in offering it and continual in showing it. One of the most important times is when a child does something that embarrasses you publicly. At that moment, you have a choice: Will I care more about how others see me or about the feelings of my child? We've all seen embarrassed parents in stores use angry, derogatory words with kids who didn't realize what they were doing. An often-quoted research study noted that the single greatest factor determining whether a child succeeds in life or messes up is the presence and acceptance of a caring adult in his or her life. The amazing discovery was that it doesn't have to be a parent! It just has to be someone who offers love, acceptance, and godly guidance.

“and said to them, “Whoever receives this little child in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me. For he who is least among you all will be great.””

‭‭Luke‬ ‭9:48‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
