Much On My Mind Lately

Today’s Verse from Heartlight.org:
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead,
bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
– Ephesians 6:4

THOUGHT:
Malachi 4:6 promised that fathers and children would be reunited
in heart. Let’s make that true in our homes by nurturing and
correcting our children — with a balance between nurture and
correction. Let’s not make our faith so full of rules and
restrictions that it becomes impossible for our children to hear
that they are our beloved children, with whom we are very pleased!
Let’s not grant so much freedom that our children feel neglected
and uncertain. Let’s turn our hearts toward them and pray for God
to turn their hearts toward their home with us and their home with you!

  1. I love this! I think, too often, we teach our children about honoring their parents, but forget our own half of the deal. Beautifully written! Thank you for the reminder. :)
