Ever feel like you can’t break through to your kid’s heart? You try to raise them right, but despite your best efforts, they’re still unkind, self-centered, lazy, untruthful … and the list goes on! What should you do? Try harder? Just somehow be better? No! You do need to persevere, but in times like these, God is reminding you that you desperately need Him. We can successfully change a child’s outward behavior (at least sometimes), but only God can change their heart. In Ezekiel 36:26, God says, “I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” Our children are sinners and need new hearts. Only God can give it to them. So don’t give up … just ask for help. Pray that God would change your kids from the inside out.
