Reaching Your Children
Children go to the arms of love, with utmost freedom. If you want to reach them, love them. Never scold. Don’t criticize. Don’t show frustration, or discouragement. Don’t tell them how bad they are. Tell them how good they may be. Never preach sin, preach it’s cure. They want to obey, just like you want to obey God. Consider the mercy given to you, and receive it. Then show them mercy, revealing Jesus.
Extreme actions never get it, but consistency will. Be consistent with love, and with loving discipline.
Settle in for the long haul, walk in love, and trust God. Teach them, train them, and watch them grow. They are awesome! They are your great reward!
