The question that every parents needs to ask is if they want their kids to be great in the world’s eyes or in God’s eyes.  That will dictate every aspect of how we parent and the direction that we set our kids on.

“We are highly impressed with what we imagine men and women can do, and we want to achieve greatness ourselves. But usually this is mere wishful thinking. Very few of us will be great in the world’s terms. And the greatness we do achieve, if we achieve it, soon passes away and we are forgotten like the builders of Babylon. It is different when God acts for us; then, the results are permanent, and the greatness he creates is true greatness.” James Montgomery Boice
