Parenting Children Based on the New Covenant
“So, here’s how the new covenant replaced the first. After the people failed miserably in their attempts to be good, God brought about His promised miracle: people who would from the heart operate from love. He did this by putting an end to the lifeless, dead heart (life-source) and created a new one. He brought this about by sending His Son in the likeness of lifeless mankind and He killed it when He died; and then He brought about a new creation after the likeness of His new, resurrected life.”
We need to parent with the attitude of the New covenant, yet realize that children cognitively can only understand the 1st covenant.
