Loving Example

Description

Parents should be the safest people children can turn to for help. Don’t abuse this privilege by aggravating or exasperating them.

Ephesians 6:4

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

Parents should be the safest people children can turn to for help. Don’t abuse that privilege by aggravating or exasperating them. Keep in mind that children are learning and growing in their knowledge of life. Do not tease them or make fun of the error of their ways. Always be loving and gentle, building them up as they are learning. Remember, you are the first representation of Christ they will see playing out in their lives.

Prayer

Father, Fill me with your loving Spirit so I will not frustrate or aggravate my children. Give me a deep love for my children so that I will want to instill your love in them. I pray that in everything I do, I will point my children to you. Amen.
