Read: Ephesians 6:4
“Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.”
Study: Where did you learn how to react to many different situations in life? For many, we learned how to cope and react to situations by watching and listening to our parents. We have the obligation to teach the next generations the disciplines and actions of Christians from the past. If you are a parent, what are you doing this week to teach your children about the “discipline and instruction of the Lord”? If you are not a parent, in what ways are you engaging with today’s youth? Your influence is needed and important.
Prayer: Holy God, thank you for the people in my life who influenced and taught me. Help me respond this week by doing the same. In your name, Amen.
