As I was going to sleep last night God really impressed something on my heart. The way a parent/child relationship should be also has a good indication of how we need to be as Christians leading those into the Kingdom. Hebrews 5:13 shows us that those who arent wise in the Kingdom yet are like those little children who still live on milk and not solid food. This reference is made multiple times in the New Testament (1 Corinthians 3:2, 1 Peter 2:2). The most important thing in a parent/child relationship is love and acceptance. The child is going to make mistakes and we must respond in love and accept the fact that they are not yet an adult. The same is true with someone who is a new Christian.
