Key #2 Share Your Heart – John 15:15

“15I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business, instead I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my father I have made known to you”.

Communicate And Develop A Friendship

There comes a point in time when the parent child relationship changes from, ‘JUST DO WHAT I TOLD YOU TO DO” to friendship.

According to Jesus friendship is a relationship in which there is a transparency, an integrity and willingness to share each other’s hearts with intimacy. Jesus shared everything in His heart and guts. He held nothing back from His disciples. As a matter of fact He said that He had told us everything the Father had told Him. Jesus kept nothing from His crew of misfits.

Jesus was sharing huge secrets of the Kingdom of God with these guys who were more trouble than He may have wanted to deal with, but that didn’t stop Him. As parents we must mature and come to the place where we don’t constantly think that our kids are “all in our faces trying to know our business”. Children are not interested so much in the day-to-day mundane responsibilities that we as adults must confront. What they are really after when they ask questions and become like a contagious virus that just won’t get lost is your time. They long, desire, yearn and long for attention and affection.

We need to mature and “grow-op” in our understanding of parenting. As parents there is a need for us to open up and unveil ourselves not only to our spouses, but to our kids as well. Make and take the time to share and let them know what’s going on in your hearts. Remember this, “Kids don’t want to know all of your business, they want to know you”.
