Fathers and Sons & Daughters

I have seen countless girls longing for love that will settle for just about anyone that will stick around.  I have seen guys trying to have sex every girl he meets.  Parents love your children or learn to love them.  The choices your children will make often depends on how well we have loved them or how secure we made them feel.  Harsh words and beatings create angry children.  Ignored your children as they grow up and they will become uncontrollable.  Judgmental parents that criticize their children often leave the Church and learn to trust no one.  

Fathers,do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.  Colossians 3:20

Fathers, do not exasperate you children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.  Ephesians 6:4

Parents tell your children you love them through out the day, spend time with them, play with them, hug and kiss them all day long.  Go to their dances the baseball games, the swim meets, their piano recitals.   Demonstrate your love for them every day.  Spend time alone with each of your children to show how special they to you.  

When they are older talk about what they want to talk about.  Take them fishing, bowling, throw the football around, play tennis, whatever the two of want to do.  Do day trips with your children to parks, the zoo, ball games, fares, camping, sailing, what ever they have wanted to do or want to do.   Read to them before they can talk clearly everyday until they can read on their own and some times read to them when they are older.   Live a Christian life before them forgiving them when let you down, hugging them when they are hurting and rescuing them when their in danger.   Stick around to see them grow up rejoicing with them when things are great and crying with them when things are rotten.  Ask for forgiveness when you hurt your children every time.  They need to see a Christian coming clean with their stuff.  Show them Grace by demonstrating it everyday.

The best thing we can for our children is love our wives. When we do, home life becomes calm and your children will be able to relax and learn to trust you.

There are no perfect parents or perfect children because we are all sinners alike. Their are only repentent parents and children.
