Word of the Day.... December 11, 2013

Instructions for Christian Households
20 Children, always obey your parents, for this pleases the Lord. 21 Fathers, do not aggravate your children, or they will become discouraged. Colossians 3:20-21

Fathers don't provoke and discourage your children. As fathers, sometimes you need to make sure that you are being reasonable with the children, taking the time to explain things to them. Don't put unreasonable demands on them and hide behind the adage: “because I'm the dad, that's why”. 

As parents, we often put unreasonable demands on our children, and expect them to live up to impossible expectations. Our unreasonable expectations will only lead them to frustration and discouragement;  When what they really need from us is our love and acceptance of them.

Being a good parent is the toughest job you will ever love and it goes by so quickly. It is as if you have simply turned around and they are grown. I have always believed that children are given to us on loan from God and He charges us with the awesome responsibility of raising them up in Him.  I hope that all of you who have children look at them with new eyes and realize what a great gift you have been given.  I hope you have a Simply Heavenly weekend!!!
