When it comes to parenting, it's a different story altogether. I want to be a rebellious parent. I see so many parents who are not rebellious. Who are rule followers. Parents who always play it safe so as not to rock the boat. I don't want that to be said of me. Parents who play it safe raise kids who play it safe.
I want to refuse allegiance to this world, resist, and rise up in arms when it comes to my kids.
I want to take a stand when everyone else remains seated. Sometimes this means standing for what's important to the life of my family. What are our priorities and where do I need to draw the line? I will rise up to defend the quality life of my family.
I will refuse allegiance to things the world is offering my children. I will take a stand when it comes to the music, movies, games, books, and T.V. my kids are exposed to. That may mean that I'm unpopular for a season in my home. I'm ok with that. A rebel doesn't operate out of a need to be liked. In fact, by their very nature, rebels rock the boat.
I will rise up in arms when it comes to the spiritual lives of my kids. I will pray powerful prayers over them that cause the enemy to know I mean business. I will take on the enemy and show no mercy. I will facilitate faith discussions in my home and train my children do what I can to nurture their spiritual development. I will be a rebel and set aside time each day for us to have faith discussions.
I am a warrior. I will not live the life of a conformist. There is too much at stake. The very lives of generations of people are at stake. I will rise to the challenge and become fight to live the life of a rebel parent.
A conformist never gets the job done. It's only the one who is willing to step out of the norms of society and who is willing to lead a rebellious life as a parent who truly makes a difference.
Do know of any rebellious parents? What sets them apart? What does a conformist
parent look like?
