Wikner: False Priority

“Too many Christian parents fall into the fleshly trap of teaching their children to be against things rather than to be for Christ. Christian education and nurture begin with constructive instruction in Christ-centered faith and practice, in seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. What we are for will guide what we must stand against. A false priority of being against certain evils will in the end be personally unfruitful and unsatisfying, and produce a spirit of hatred, spite, malice, and bitterness.”

– Benjamin Wikner, “Raising Children in Christ-Centered Truth, Love, and Beauty”
