Luke 11: 46 “Jesus replied, ‘And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them.’”
Ouch! When I read “experts in the law” I hear “parents”. When we as parents give “don’ts” without “do’s” a child is too burdened, he can feel buried under failure.
Our children need our help. When we give them what to do in a situation, we are getting up from our “expert” position and coming along side them to truly help.
ESP, explain, show and practice will remove this "woe" and replace it with “Wow” because we are really helping our children when we train them in the way to go, not just burdening them with the heavy weight of what not to do.
