Your child-rearing responsibilities are a chief responsibility for you as the family’s spiritual leader–and an area very susceptible to arrogance and blindness in part because of its importance.
And because the buck stops with us, there’s no area in your marriage where you’ll feel more confident about casting the deciding vote as Chief Tie-breaker. You probably should do so at times, especially if your spiritual temperature is higher than your wife’s. Christ never backed away from the truth for the sake of peace, though He knew His convictions would take Him to the cross. He came in pursuit of righteousness and on behalf of righteousness. That’s our call, too.
Today, though I desire peace in my home, I
will not back away from the truth simply
for the sake of peace.
