Here are some highlights of the steps we discussed in responding to our “blowing it” moments with our kids:
- Don’t be passive. We need to be initiative and intentional in our response.
- Make seeking God a priority. Our healing and forgiveness starts with confessing our sins to God and asking for His grace. He almost always then challenges us to seek and offer forgiveness to others.
- Say “I’m sorry” with no “buts” attached.
- Maintain an attitude of brokenness. We need to model humility and a reliance on God.
