Touching Your Child's Heart

I heard John Piper say in an interview with Mark Driscoll that one of the things he most regrets about about his time parenting his now adult boys, is that he didn't work hard enough to push inside their hearts and draw them out. He taught them the Bible, he disciplined them to be responsible, he cheered them on in sports and activities, but he feels like he didn't do enough to teach them to understand and nurture their hearts. Watch the video and fast-forward to the 34th minute to hear John talk about this.

What a challenge! I want to connect with my own kid a deep level. I want to be in touch with their hearts and give them the tools to be in touch with their own hearts and the hearts of their own kids someday. The stage I am in now is precious time that I can't afford to waste.
