Tell Them You Love Them


If you have kids, let them know that you love them and are proud of them. They will remember your words for years to come.

Luke 3:21-22

When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

I am convinced there is no better thing that can be done for a son than for his father to tell him he loves him, and is proud of him.

My dad didn’t express his emotions in words very often – his expressions of love were more often found in his actions. Playing with us, going to our sporting events and activities, and basically always being there for us.

Although He probably didn’t need it, it must have felt good for Jesus to have that public proclamation of His Father’s love; His endorsement of who His Son was and His pride in that.

If you have a son or daughter, let them know that you love them, and that you are proud of them. I promise you they will remember those words for a long time.
