Parenting adult children can sometimes be a delicate dance. But just as we did when they were younger, we have to hold them out to the Lord, asking that He go before them each and every day. He loves them far more than we ever could and can draw them close with His kindness. If we begin now while they are younger to welcome their questions, to encourage them to seek the truth in Scripture, to model what it looks like to listen to the Spirit’s leading, then we’ll stand a better chance of having kids who continue to do all of those things even into adulthood.
