Be Present Where You Are – part 4
The Bible tells us in Proverbs 22:6 (NIV) “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”
Part of being ‘present’ with your family is so they can see a godly example of not only honoring God by going to church and participating in Bible studies and church events; but of how to honor each other as a family.
– The spiritual development of our children is very important.
Put together a plan for each of your children outlining their strengths, areas for improvement, and what your plans are to help shape their character as they grow. It is our job, as parents, to help shape our children to become all that God has intended for them.
– Schedule at least one hour, each week, of alone time with each child and with your spouse.
It is important that we connect one-to-one, and can give our full attention to that one person.
1 Thessalonians 5:13 (NIV)
“Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.”
To The Point: Spend time with the ones you love.
Prayer: “Lord, I don’t always love people as I should – as You love them. Give me a heart like Yours, so that I can truly love people as they are, not as I would like them to be.”
