Grace-based parents don’t make it their aim to raise safe kids. Instead, they want to raise strong kids. Spiritually safe kids seldom get to see just how wonderful and powerful their God really is. Spiritual safety is a prescription for spiritual impotency. The good news about raising strong Christian kids is that you get safe kids in the process. They know God’s love, they’ve seen Him work, and they understand how to appropriate His power.
