i married a genius

My wife is brilliant.

We were talking tonight about parenting, disciplining children, and sharing the gospel with children and she basically said the following:

Parents have children.  Parents pass their own sin down to their children.  Children sin in the same way their parents sin.  Parents must figure out how to correct their children and speak the gospel to their sin.  In doing so, parents must learn how to speak the gospel to their own sin.  In this way (among others) parents learn to preach the gospel to themselves and are sanctified through their children.

Like I said, Beth is brilliant and it never ceases to encourage me to see Beth mother Abbey.

I am a fortunate man.
