Ep. 346: Not Your Fault, Still Your Responsibility

Jay shares a powerful set of words that can help rewire your household to get past the blame game and start working towards making things right. “It doesn’t have to be your fault to be your responsibility” is a concept we see through the teachings of Scripture (The Good Samaritan, Galatians 6, the incarnation of Jesus). As we start to incorporate this concept into every day life we will see endless applications in our households that will train our children for a more fruitful adult life. Learn how “not your fault, still your responsibility” can help you change the conversation with 

  • messes and spills

  • lost toys

  • group projects and homework assignments

  • arguments and fights

  • the larger broken world around us. 

Jay walks through a biblical basis for the concept and then shares several real world examples where you can apply this teaching in with your children.
