Student of Child
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.
We lead by example and more so with our children than anyone else. Children are always watching you as a mom, watching to see if you are consistent, fair, loving, and if you really care about them. The best way to teach your child is to lead by example. If you want to teach your child to have a compassionate heart, then you as a mom must have a compassionate heart. If you want your child to be generous and thoughtful, then you must display those traits. Ask God to fill you with his loving Spirit and those traits will flow out of you like water that flows from a river.
Father, Fill me with your Spirit. Pour into me, so I can in turn pour into my family. I want to walk with you, and depend on you, so that your loving ways will flow through me. God, I cannot give what I do not have and I know that I need you in order to love my children the way you love me, unconditionally. Thank you that you give love freely. I pray that I will grow deeper in my walk with you.
