JUNE 18, 2017 (Once again, this is a great tribute to all the wonderful dads out there! So blessed to be able to share it year after year! Enjoy, njh)
DAD (Do’s And Don’ts)
Why is it when DAD says no, we say yes?
When DAD says don’t grumble, we grumble.
When DAD says wait just a minute, we want it now!
When DAD says love one another (as in “be nice to your brother or sister”), we decide to wait and see if they will be nice to us first!
Every DAD reading this knows exactly what it feels like to be teaching their children and how many times they have to repeat the same things over and over.
Now, substitute the word GOD for DAD. Our Heavenly father goes through the same Do’s and Don’ts when He talks to us! And just like our own children, we have those times we just do not do what He tells us.
He loves us unconditionally and never tires of offering us all the blessings He wants us to have every day of our lives. We just need to LISTEN and OBEY.
So when you are in the midst of the DO’s and Don’ts you are trying to teach your children, here are some scriptures to remember.
Psalm 51: 10 Create in me a pure heart, oh God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Psalm 37: 5-6 “Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.”
Remember to share a favorite scripture with your children and let them know what it has meant in your life.
Have a Happy and Blessed Father’s Day!
