Helping Kids Find Worth in God Instead of Accomplishments

How do we teach our children to find their worth in who God says they are, rather than in what they can do?

That’s the question we’re asking on today’s episode of the podcast. It’s way too easy for our children, for us, to feel that our worth comes from what we can do, and not from who we are in Christ. For our children, it can be about sports, friendships, academic success, popularity, clothing, hair…really anything. When I was growing up, and really well into my adulthood, I found most of my self-worth in making good grades, and appearing smart to those around me. I believed that if I worked hard enough, I could accomplish anything I set my mind to…and isn’t that just exactly what the world tells our children?

As believers, as parents who are trying to raise our children to know and love Jesus, we want our children’s identities to be shaped by what God says about them, and nothing else. In fact, we want what God says about them, and about Himself, to help them stand strong when the events of their lives try to convince them of something else. But how do we do that?

Join me today as we look at what God’s Word has to say about who our children are, what makes them unique, their beliefs, and how the world is shaping them in ways that might not be healthy.
