In this week’s Shovel Audio program, Jim and Adam discuss the various fleshly ideas surrounding raising kids ‘under grace’. We will base our discussion on Ephesians 6:1-4, Paul’s letter to those in Ephesus. What exactly does it mean to raise our kids in the ‘instruction of the Lord”? If we do will they turn out perfect then? Questions like these will fill this weeks audio entitled: “The Joining Of Two Plus One!”

Jim, This was so GOOOD!!! I wish I would have known more of this when my children were a little younger! However,it is never too late to learn more and have a better understanding. We went from a very legalistic lifestyle to the exact opposite and recently we have gone back to setting stricter guidelines etc. Listening to your audio has confirmed that we are headed in the right direction. Thanks so much for sharing your insight and I couldn’t agree more!! Charlie “Tremendous” Jones used to say that you have kids not for you to raise but for them to raise you. They drive us to our Christ and I’ve realized that my kid’s sins cause me more pain & sorrow than my own and then I see my need for Christ in my own life! One in Christ, Dan Markley

Yeah, I wish I would have known more of this when my children were younger, too! LOL. But as you attest to, it was through the experiences of raising them that I came to understand this grace more.

Random Shovelquote: The living side of the grave (view all shovelquotes)

there is no advice in this world – even if it comes from a Bible verse or a preacher’s sermon – that can produce God’s work within you. Oh, it might make you appear more spiritually productive, but the working of God doesn’t come from the practical side of the grave … but from the living side that has risen past it. When I tell you that Christ is your life, I’m telling you about the one and only present-tense reality that causes you to live as one who is truly alive in this world. source
