Parenting Litmus Test

A friend of mine sent me this question in a text last night…

…if u were asked “what does God define as success in parenting” backed by scripture, what would u say?”

Here was my response…

“My immediate fall back is Proverbs 22:6.  As parents our role is to watch, learn and recognize the intricate design of our kids.  To learn to see them through the eyes of their Creator.  To teach their child how to pursue the heart of their Creator and exercise the gifts He’s put inside of them for the very purpose of serving Him. It’s a 50 year litmus test.”

How would you answer that question?
