Parenting… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Our Daily Bread with tags , , , on October 13, 2020 by paulthepoke

Of all the jobs I’ve had, the one constant is being a parent. It’s the one I’m most proud of & strive be better at. It’s the one that’s most important to me. It’s the one I feel I probably fail at the most, but I truly hope & pray I get better at & my children respect, appreciate, & love me for. I know there are some that for whatever reason, will not have kids, but believe me when I say there are kids that look up to you. You have a job with them too. It truly takes a village. Have a heart for children & be an example…

Psalm 103:13 Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.

Hebrews 12:7 It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?

Have a great week my friends!!!

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!!!

Children are a gift & we are responsible for providing for them. They didn’t ask for this life, so we should put them first. Make them feel wanted & important, because they are. Give them the love & tools to needed to lead a good & happy life.

Be the parent that you want your kids to be. Be the friend that you want to have. Be the change that you want to see. Be the love that you want to receive. Lead by example. Sew what you want back.

2 Corinthians 12:14 Here for the third time I am ready to come to you. And I will not be a burden, for I seek not what is yours but you. For children are not obligated to save up for their parents, but parents for their children.

Have a great weekend my friends!!!
