Chapter 7: The Freedom To Be Different

Can you tell it’s crunch time? I need to finish this book pronto so Craig can have his turn reading it. Three quotes for tonight:

Page 140, “Grace must be quantifiable. To talk about grace, sing about grace, and have our children memorize verses about grace—but not give them specific gifts of grace—is to undermine God’s work of grace in their hearts.”

Page 141, “We take things that are huge to children and trivialize them, or we take small issues and magnify them out of proportion.”

Page 142, “When we elevate an arbitrary Christian behavior above the best interests of a child’s heart, we’ve clearly lost our way. There’s no other explanation for it.”

Wow, ouch, wow, ouch, wow. Good words.
