Today's Verse : Ephesians 6:4


June 4, 2012

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up
in the training and instruction of the Lord.
-- Ephesians 6:4

Malachi 4:6 promised that fathers and children would be reunited
in heart. Let's make that true in our homes by nurturing and
correcting our children -- with a balance between nurture and
correction. Let's not make our faith so full of rules and
restrictions that it becomes impossible for our children to hear
that they are our beloved children, with whom we are very pleased!
Let's not grant so much freedom that our children feel neglected
and uncertain. Let's turn our hearts toward them and pray for God
to turn their hearts toward their home with us and their home with

O Lord God Almighty, Abba Father, our land lies under a curse
because so many Fathers have spiritually and physically abandoned
their children. Please raise up parents, especially fathers, who
will balance the challenging tasks of love, nurture, and correction
so that our land may be healed and our children may know your love
and grace. In Jesus name. Amen.
