- Each of them has to come to terms with God's command to repent and believe for themselves. pg. 130
- … we've been able to teach our children the expectation that an offended believer should seek to restore the relationship someone else has broken. pg. 135

Why? Don't you just love that question? We quickly implemented Hal and Melanie's suggestion to teach our boys to obey and then discuss why. There are times when something is needed quickly or there is a dangerous situation that needs to be addressed – and there's no time to discuss the whys in the moment. This one has been slow going for us, but Jonathan is starting to get it. I usually just have to say that we'll talk when you're done obeying.
This chapter is a little beyond where we are right now, but there are some great examples in this chapter of teaching your children how to handle money and being a responsible worker.
Let's talk! How do you deal with the “whys”? What about teaching your kids about financial and job success? Share your thoughts in the comments.
