MY VERSE FOR TODAY

Today I have been reflecting on my children. I am not sure how we even imagined we would be capable of raising them ourselves but the fact of the matter is that they are a GIFT from God. He sent them to us with a purpose. He will guide us on their upbringing. We HAVE TO LISTEN!!

Verse: Colossions 3:20-21
(20) Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. (21) Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

(my interpretation) Teach your children to obey you without question, the way God wants us to obey Him. It will be the way God wants it to be and makes Him happy to know that we are obeying Him by teaching our children well.


Verse: Proverbs 22:6
Train up your child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

(my interpretation) If you start early teaching your child morals and biblical principles, he/she will have a better understanding of Christ. Along this line, they may stray from this path occassionally but will know the difference whether they would admit it or not. They can choose to step back onto the right path.
