THE FIGHT WE FIGHT. Jeff VanVonderen writes: “Our children’s biggest struggle is exactly the same as ours: We are all fighting to draw our sense of significance, have our real needs met, and to view ourselves as loved and accepted on the basis of Christ’s performance and not our own. Unfortunately--as it is with many Christian adults--that fight has been lost for our children in the preoccupation with performance that is so prevalent in Christian families and churches” (from Families Where Grace Is In Place). From where are you drawing your sense of significance, love, and acceptance?
