Dads, Your Words Are Powerful – Day 2

As I get today started and think about my family, reflecting on what God has been able to do in and through me and through each of us, I turn to the reality and truth of the power of God’s Word. The power of God’s Word put all creation into motion. As I look towards today, I consider the power of words and what God will be able to speak through His Word and through this devotional.

Words have the power to heal! Words have the power to change lives! Words have the power to influence! Words have the power to inspire! Words have the power to create! Words have the power to destroy! Words have the power to build up! Words have the power to tear down! Words have the power of life! Words have the power of death! So let’s remember this and consider the warnings and warning signs we need to be aware of.

Scripture for Today’s Devotional:

‘ Fathers, do not irritate and provoke your children to anger [do not exasperate them to resentment], but rear them [tenderly] in the training and discipline and the counsel and admonition of the Lord.’

Ephesians 6:4

‘ 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

Let’s be the dads who choose to raise our kids tenderly as we train and disciple them! Let’s be the dads who choose to raise our kids tenderly in the counsel and admonition of God! Let’s be the dads who are aware of the stresses and pressures of life and avoid irritating and provoking our kids to anger! Let’s be the dads who are aware of the stresses and pressures of life and avoid exasperating our kids to the point of resentment! Let’s be the dads who avoid being hard on our kids and harassing them causing them to become provoked or irritated or corrode our relationship with our kids! Let’s be the dads who encourage and love our kids so that we don’t break their spirit by discouraging, demoralizing, and frustrating them!
