Setting an example 101

Thought of the day: perhaps the hardest part of parenting (from my extensive 5+ month experience) is modelling for my child what I would like them to be – much more than I ever was, am or will be. How can I model something I am not?
I reflect on 1 Corinthians 15:10 and notice God’s continual grace toward me and I take comfort in 2 Corinthians 12:9. As it is with everything else in life, it’s by the grace of God.
