Our Daily Bread…Featuring Paul Beverly

parentingIn light of some of the horrific incidents in our world recently & in recent years, these thoughts are on my mind. The most important job you could have in this life is being a parent. You no longer make choices just for you when you become a parent. Being a parent should never be looked at as a sacrifice, it’s a privilege that sadly not all get that chance. I know that when life seems to be getting me down, when I focus on my children, everything gets better. We are leaving this world to our children, make sure they are prepared to succeed. Make sure they learn respect & love. There are many books on raising children, but what works for one child may not work for the next. The only perfect book on raising children is the Bible in my opinion. Put our children first.

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Colossians 3:21 Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.

Psalm 127:3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

Proverbs 29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.

Have a great week my friends!!!
