The Bible reminds children to honor their parents, but it also gives reminders to parents. As parents (or aunts, uncles, grandparents, relatives, church family, or close friends), we should try to be the best possible role models for the children in our lives. We shouldn't set children up in ways that provoke them and cause them to get angry. Instead, we should try to show them God's way and help them handle situations in their lives in a Godly and loving manner. When we are responsible and Godly adults in children's lives, then children can begin to see the love and guidance of the Greatest Father, the one, true God!
Live your life as a role model for the children (and adults) around you so they may see God shining through you!
Thank You for loving me and being my Heavenly Father. Help me to always show Your love, compassion, and discipline to my child and to all the children I encounter. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
