If someone entrusted you with a precious treasure, would you throw it away? And yet that’s what some parents do with their children. Today’s devotional will explain. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Genesis 18:19 (ESV)
19 For I have chosen him, that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring to Abraham what he has promised him.”
“In the Christian home the father is the head. I am ‘God’ to my children. I am supreme authority to the, just as God is supreme authority to me. As I relate to God, my children will relate to me; as I accept God’s authority, so my children will accept my authority…. On the other hand, if I accept not God as my authority, my children will not accept me as their authority. I know by the actions of my children how successful I have been in relating to God. My children mirror my spiritual relationship with my heavenly Father.” [Norvell L. Peterson, “Standing in as God’s Surrogate,” Psychology for Living, (June 1974), p. 4]
