MS. LESLIE’S LETTER TO PARENTS
A fascinating fact: no two children are alike. Parents of multiple children marvel at how the same two people can create such different children. Different appearances. Different preferences. Different personalities. Different passions. Every child is different. Unique.
The uniqueness of children is innate. God created them to be different. Consequently, children will naturally look for ways to be different because something deep inside them knows they are different. They want to be different.
In their search, children hear two conflicting voices.
The world shouts, “Look the same. Buy this brand.” So, they try to fit in. “Look different. Try green hair.” They try to stand out.
In the meantime . . .
God whispers, “I made you different. I gave you special gifts. I made you an amazing mixture of personality, passion, and preferences that is like no one else. All are given to you to make this world a kinder place.”
Here’s our task: How can we help God’s voice be the loudest voice our children hear?
Lord, God, thank you for the unique children You place in our lives. Help us to be still enough … patient enough …..to watch our children through Your eyes and listen to them through Your ears . Help us help our children delight in their miraculous, magnificent, different selves. We adore You, O Christ, now and forever. Amen.
