Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord.Ephesians 6:4
Train Your Children
Children are a blessing from the Lord. He has given them to us to teach us how to love, care for, and forgive others. We can learn so much just by taking His guidance when parenting our children. While they can provoke us often in the way they behave, we must remember to not be angered. Anger is a strong emotion that can lead to action. Anger in itself is not a sin, but can produce a sin in the way we speak to and treat our children. We never want to stifle their spirits, so we must be cautious when handling them. Handle with care! All discipline and instruction should always come from the Lord.
Where does your discipline and instruction come from? Do you seek the Lord? When you spend time in prayer and studying His Word, He will give you the wisdom and answers you need to raise your children in His love.
A Prayer to Remember
Our children are so fragile. You created them in your image to be loved and cared for by us. Help me love my children in the way you have loved me. Amen
