I often ask myself, “Am I simply trying to raise obedient children? Or am I trying to raise successful people who can make decisions on their own?”
I also ask this question to friends or people I’m counseling in the form of self-reflection.
Are you simply trying to be obedient for obedience’s sake? Or are you actively thinking through your actions with success as the end goal?
God never intended obedience devoid of success. If God is planning for you to be successful, you should be, too. One good decision at a time. ch:
