A secret about God, His choice of parents, and an attitude of heart leading to our successfully reaping all the fruit intended for us in the gift of our parents.
We come now to the heart of what’s at stake in making peace with parents: loving God.
God doesn’t leave us hating our parents; that’s not His goal.
Short answer? Yes, if we want to be a disciple of Christ.
Idolatry is about our focus, so it can be love OR hate.
You have no spiritual discernment when you project your parents' faces on everyone you meet.
The face value of any circumstance is usually a mere delivery system, the true definition is held in the mind of God.
If you don’t make peace with your story, then you aren’t you.
Listening to the messenger and missing the message.
Are we shaped more powerfully by our response to what we didn’t have than by what we did?
I thought because I wanted it, I needed it and should have had it.
Someone has to be willing to wrestle it out before God, breaking the line of those who hate Him.
