 If the child lives in an atmosphere of criticism:  They learn to condemn. If the child lives in an atmosphere of hostility: They learn how to fight. If the child lives in an environment where they ridicule: They learn to be shy. If the child lives in an environment where you ashamed: They learn to feel guilty. If the child lives in an atmosphere of tolerance: They learn to be patient. If the child lives in an atmosphere of encouragement: They learn to have confidence. If the child lives in an environment where you praise: They learn to appreciate. If the child lives in an atmosphere of fairness: They learn to be fair. If the child lives in an atmosphere of safety: They learn to have faith. If the child lives in an atmosphere of approval: They learn to be in harmony with itself. If the child lives in an atmosphere of acceptance and affection: They learn how to find love in the world. May we remember that our children are always watching and learning and what we show their precious hearts means so much. Help them with their choices by making a choice for them today in what kind of a father or mother, friend or leader you will be today. The choices you make today will dictate the life you will lead tomorrow. This is so true for our children in who they will be and whom they will follow. There can be many family resemblances, whether it's hair, height, face, or even health problems. There are some family resemblances that are less obvious and much more damaging. ... They damage our marriage, kids, close relationships, future, and our self-worth. We pick up from our parents ways of talking and acting that we didn't like in them. Suddenly we hear ourselves sounding like mom or dad and treating others as our parents did. We react, communicate, and live as they did in ways we never meant to repeat. Of course, our children will have to go through the same pain unless something changes. Children learn what they live, for better or for worse. It's ultimately what our children live that makes them into the people they become. God doesn't give a human being any greater trust or any greater responsibility than the shaping of a person He made in His image. Our children are, as one author described them, "wet cement." What they experience with us day after day is writing things in that cement that will mark their lives long after we're gone. As a father or mother, you have a lot of important roles, but none so cosmic or great, so eternal as planting the love of God, Christ Jesus, in your son or daughters heart. Joshua 24:15 (New King James Version) 15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Love your child today. Instill the LOVE of JESUS in their heart by taking the time to tell them JESUS loves them and you do too. Start today by taking the time to listen and love, encourage and praise, to lead them not in the way of the world and its selfishness but in the way of Christ Jesus and His love. When the last trumpet sounds it will be to late and being enlisted in the army of Christ we should always keep in mind “ to leave no one behind”, especially our loved ones and our children. Matthew 19:14 (New International Version) 14Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Mark 10:14 (New International Version) 14When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Luke 18:16 (New International Version) 16But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. In these three verses Jesus says “do not hinder them”. So please bless them with your life and not let it be a hindrance to them. Show them His love. It really makes a difference when you focus the warmth of the sun on one spot. It really makes a difference when you focus the warmth of your love on one person. Especially if that person is the life partner you have or one of the children God has entrusted to you. The question for today isn't whether you love your family - I'm sure you do. The question is this: does each member of your family feel loved by you? Now, that may depend on how much focused love they get from you. The way that Indian man built his home decades ago is still the only way to build a home - one building block at a time. And those building blocks are called days. Not years, not months, not weeks – days and in those days each moment counts in eternity. Make this moment count in His love and teach them the way to go. Ephesians 6:4 (New International Version) 4Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. Proverbs 22:6 (New King James Version) 6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
