What character goals do we have for our children?

October 5th, 2010

Soccer, basketball, scouting, karate, piano lessons,  art lessons – we give our children many opportunities to grow.

Have we also considered the character traits that we want our children to develop?

It can be all too easy to let the prevailing culture’s values carry us along while we are too busy with the daily living.

How can we be intentional in developing character traits in our children?

Start with making a list of what you would like to see in your children. Here are a few on my list:

* I want my children to be generous with their possessions.

* I want my children to show kindness to those who are considered outcasts and lowly.

* I want my children to have the courage to stand up for what is right, even when it is not popular nor politically correct.

* I want my children to be the type to go out of their way to help people.

* I want my children to have a positive can-do attitude towards problems that come their way.

* I want my children to . . .

What do you want your children to be?
