My daughter participates in sports and gives her all on the court every time she plays with her team. But in spite of her team's efforts, they still come up short when they play.
What do you do when your child
in sports or other
activities and ends on a losing team? How do you continue to
them when they want to quit because they never win?
By reminding them that every loss is designed to be a part of their character development. For like a good parent, their heavenly father has a list of character traits he wants to develop in them. T
raits like patience,
endurance, long-suffering and self-control (Galatians 5:22). And although they may not always like the method He uses to develop their character, his purpose is never to hurt them, but to help them grow to get ready for whatever lies ahead.
So whether your child wins or loses as they participate in their team sports this school year - it's all
Sharing the journey,
Mother's prayer: Father, whether they win or lose, thank you for knowing what is best for my children as you build their character. Amen.
