Quoting Quiverfull: So Easing Your Child’s Discomfort is Sin?

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

by Jay Younts of Shepherd Press - The Tyranny of the Immediate If your children believe the lie that getting instant relief from their discomfort or discontent is ultimate, then they are bound by the power of sin.

Understanding this will help you teach your children to see how sin deceives them. Sin feeds on the desire for immediate results.
