I asked Dan:

What's the hardest thing about being a dad?

And like many other guests, he talked about how sanctifying (and frankly humiliating at times) parenting is. Our kids are little mirrors, often showing us the ugly parts of ourselves.

Big Question: Does God Love Everyone?

This event is put on by the ERLC, which Dan Darling works with, and I am so thankful they have made this event on racial reconciliation available for all of us online.

Today's episode covers some topics that some find controversial. Ultimately, we want kids to know that God loves everyone and hopes that they will follow Him, but He also knows that not all people will. There are particular rights that are afforded to His children.

These concepts of theology - of being children of God and as the Bible says, His chosen people should not point us to arrogance but to fall on our knees in worship!
