Parents plus children…guaranteed stress!

God’s Children  |  December 21

…a wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is the grief of his mother.
He who gathers in summer is a wise son, but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.
“Now therefore, listen to me, my children, for blessed are those who keep my ways.
Hear instruction and be wise, and do not disdain it.

Proverbs 10:1; 5, Proverbs 8:32-33

Father, such wisdom seems obvious to us but we do experience both grief and joy as parents. Help us, today, with those circumstances wherein children are alienated from us as parents. We are so tempted to blame the child when they misbehave but it is the heart of the child that has lost focus.

Father, we want to be effective, in our role as parents, to train up our children in the way of the Lord so that they may not depart from Your will when stressful situations come upon them. We surely will be held accountable by You for teaching them Your word.

We pray for wisdom and understanding within our families and for Your hand upon every aspect of our lives and our children’s lives. Bless us this day, in Jesus’ Holy name, amen.

October 16, 2020 God knows the numbers of hair on my way. October 15, 2020 The 10 commandments are out of date...right? October 14, 2020 Just how important is a child to God? October 13, 2020 Me, a saint? No that right?
