FAMILY & PARENTING
Family life can be challenging, but God has answers! Learn to make Him part of your family!
He will bless those who fear the Lord, both the small and the great. May the Lord give you increase, you and your children!
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
I Corinthians 13:4-7
Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
For You O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
And these Words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up.
For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
Chasten your son while there is hope, and do not set your heart on his destruction.
Train up a child in the way he should go, when he is old he will not depart from it.
Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child: the rod of correction will drive it far from him.
Do not withhold correction from a child, for if you beat him with a rod, he will not die. You shall beat him with a rod, and deliver his soul from hell.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth”. And you, Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord.
