How Much Should I Help My Adult Children?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Sep 16, 2020 9:00:00 AM

This has been an age-old battle and it happens relentlessly throughout all stages of life.

 

I want to tell you one of the things that I think my parents did a wonderful job on.  I didn't think so at first but once once I've gotten a little bit older I fully realized why my mom and dad took this approach when I turned 18 years old.  I was still living at home and my mom came to me one day and she said. “Listen. starting today you're 18 years old.  You're a young man, you're gonna start paying rent.  We don't need the money but you need the experience you need to practice.”  And I'm like man, “This is I don't like this like.  This is a terrible thing.”  But later in life I come to realize that there's a time to kind of cut the strings.  There's a time that you go out on your own and you become the man that God called you to be.

 

Here's the thing that I see happening over and over and over.  Parents today are enabling their adult children.  When you are enabling your adult child, you're not doing them any favors.

I'm Searching For Clarity And Can't Find It

Posted by Aaron Walker on Aug 26, 2020 9:00:00 AM

It is not clarity you are looking for. It is safety and security.

 

I think many of you today know exactly what you need to be doing but you're like, "If it was a sure thing, if I was going to make money, if I wasn't gonna put my family in jeopardy, if I wasn't gonna do any of those things without a doubt I would do that." Well, really, don't you think it's the safety and the security that you're searching for and not necessarily the clarity?

 

There is no assurance out there. There's no sure deals out there at all.

We need to be generous to people but we do not to be shouting it from the mountain tops.

But listen first. We are going to get thru this thing. We are not going to let it keep us down. Let's have our heads up and let's keep on marching forward! Let us be an encouragement!
