Eph. 6:4. “4. 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.”
- Although fathers are addresses it is also applicable to mothers, the way dissipline is thought and enforced are applicable to both parents.
- As a parent how often do you experience your children retaliating with a spirit of anger towards your dissipline and instructions?
- How would you rate yourself on the the way you are enforcing dissipline and giving instructions to your children?
- Does your behaviour and the words that you utter towards your children provoke them to anger?
- Do you treat your children with cruelty and repugnance, or do you nourish them in the discipline and instructions of the Lord?
- By treating or punishing your child with cruelty and repugnance you harden their spirit and make them desperate in their sins.
- When correcting your child do it from a principle of affectionate concern and not from a point of revenge.
- Nourish them in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Pro. 22:6)
Heavenly Father I come to You in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ. Lord I want to thank You for the privilege I have to blessed with children, thank You for entrusting me with the gift of children. Lord today I have to confess that I am not always a model parent, Lord there were days that I have uttered words, where my behaviour was far from what it should have been. I realize that I have said and done things that have hurt and provoked my children to anger. Lord for that I come to You and I pray for Your forgiveness. Lord please give me the strength, wisdom and knowledge to mend my relationship with my children, to raise and nourish them according to the discipline and instructions of Your will. Amen
In Christ united through Love.
