The “discipline and instruction of the Lord” is not a list or law…but the Lord. And He’s writing a story in your life that produces faith. That story is the Gospel of Grace. Faith, quite simply, is Trust. To bring your children up in the “discipline and instruction of the Lord” is not to make them conform to some list, but to be used by God to write a story of His Grace upon their hearts.
(This is #30 in our series from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.)
