Devotional: The Job Of Parenting

Christian Devotion on Parenting



"...Fathers, do not provoke or irritate or fret your children [do not be hard on them or harass them], lest they become discouraged and sullen and morose and feel inferior and frustrated. [Do not break their spirit.]..." - Colossians 3:21 (AMPC)

One of the hardest things I find in life is being a parent. This is one area where we need more of God's wisdom, daily. It's easy to lose your cool and say things you wish you could take back.

We all long to do the right things in raising our children. We long to instil into their lives the things of God, and for them to have a secure foundation. Sometimes we need to prioritise things. What's really important? Let things go that are more trivial. Children can feel harassed and discouraged if their parents come down on every little thing. They may feel that nothing they do is any good. A child's spirit is easily broken. We need to be on our knees for our kids, asking God for His wisdom, guidance, direction, strength and patience. It's the hardest job, but with God's help we can do it!

Parenting is still the hardest job
So we need help and wisdom from our God.
