Second hand stress – Kevin DeYoung has some helpful advice

Kevin DeYoung has a very helpful piece on how when parents get stressed the health of our children suffer.

It’s a challenging read if you are a parent but the principle that being stressed has a damaging impact on our reaction to and our relationship with others works too. So whether married or not, with kids or without, here’s an opportunity to ask;

What impact is my stress having on my relationships (at home, work, etc.)? Do I see the impact that is having?

What is causing stress in my life? Is it anxiety over the future, needing to be in control, tiredness, overwork….

How do I need to remember the gospel, to enable change, so that I can be a blessing to others instead of a burden?
