“If imperfect parents know how to lovingly take care of their children and give them what they need, how much more will the perfect heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit’s fullness when his children ask him.”
The constant pressure of being an example to the kids in your life can be tough. None of us are perfect: we snap at our kids, get irritated when they don’t listen, and feel guilty when we give them an extra hour of screen time. We’re human. So, how can we possibly be expected to set an example of perfection when it comes to our little ones? That’s where the Holy Spirit comes in.
God’s Holy Spirit lives inside everyone who follows Jesus, giving us the ability to embody godly attributes (kindness, gentleness, and self-control, to name a few).
The children in our lives need those things just as much as we do. They get frightened, impatient, and frustrated, too.
The concept of teaching children about the Holy Spirit can be overwhelming. But, it’s important that they understand that God loves them so much that He sent His Spirit to be with them forever.
