We read in Luke 15 the story of the prodigal son. Have you ever noticed in that chapter that the prodigal didn't come to his senses until he had LOST everything he had? He had to go way down to the bottom to be able to look up and see what he was missing. Sometimes we GIVE our children...or maybe even give ourselves...way too much and then they/we become slaves to it.
Remember that YOU are the parent. Sometimes we as adults have to "lose everything" in order to come to our senses, as well. Sometimes we're no different than that prodigal.
As parents, our children are entitled to love, patience and a host of other godly qualities; however they are not entitled to things that we become slaves to such as cell phones, video games and yes, even cars. Take it away. A great lesson for us parents, and actually, for all of us!
