As we just celebrated Father’s Day, today is a good time for us to reflect on what type of parents that the Lord calls us to be.
In Ephesians 6:1-4 Paul writes, “6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: 3 “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”4 And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.”
We get very focused on having our children obey us, but do we obey our Father? If we do, will show our children God’s love, God’s kindness, God’s compassion and faithfulness. No, it doesn’t mean that we give our children everything that they want, but it means that we do give them the one thing that they need the most — the Lord.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
