How to Raise a Pharisee

I am always on the look-out for good advice because most days I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to raising my kids. One thing is sure though: I want them to know and love Jesus Christ. So with that in mind I bring you this...
Carey Hardy, Senior Executive Pastor at Grace Community Church, recently gave a seminar at the Shepherds' Conference on How to Raise a Pharisee, which contains a number of helpful reminders of what not to do as a parent:
  1. Majoring on external instead of internal issues
  2. Excessive control
  3. Overreacting to failure
  4. Being unforgiving and impatient
  5. Elevating preference over biblical principle
  6. Unnecessary separatism
  7. Judging others…other families
  8. Being “belligerent”—a fighter
  9. Favoritism
  10. No humor
  11. Building up their self-esteem
  12. Lack of genuine spirituality
Read the whole thing for explanation/elaboration.
