“Who Do You Love More?”

Yikes. Tim Challies pulls no punches and dives into one of the hardest questions a parent can face: “Who Do You Love More?” In this case, the question was not which of the kids he loves more, but whether he loves them or their mother more. I am inclined to agree with his answer, in that it is important for parents to love each other first and foremost and not let their affections for their children undermine the marital bond itself. I’m less sure about his approach; I honestly don’t know what the best approach here is. Sometimes, a parent – even a fantastic one – is going to make his or her kids cry by doing what is best for them, I know. I’m curious what other people think on this one; there’s a good debate already going on Tim’s site, so either weigh in there or weigh in below, please.
