The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.Lamentations 3:22-23
His Faithfulness Never Ends
This is a great verse that we can also apply to parenting. God‘s mercies are new every single morning. That means that when we run to Him and ask for forgiveness, He is faithful and will offer that forgiveness to us time and time again. He is steadfast and patient with us. This is how we should be with our children. They are young and learning, so they will not always know the right thing to do. It is something we must teach them so they can grow in the Lord and understand right from wrong. Just as God forgives us when we ask Christ for His forgiveness, we should forgive our children when they wrong us. And they will because they are young. We must teach them right from wrong and also extend our grace even when they do not deserve it.
We did not deserve the grace of the father and yet he still poured out his grace and mercy upon us. So we must do the same for others and especially those in our household.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you so much for the grace and mercy you have extended to me, Lord. Help me extend the same grace and mercy and forgiveness to my children. Help me teach them right from wrong according to your Word. Amen.
