Teaching DS And DD Obedience

Dear God,

I personally think that my quiet time for today is every parent's favorite pasage in the Bible. As parents we all want these to become our kids' life verses. The thing is, we seem to just expect it to happen right on... We fail or most of the time forget to realize that we, too, as parents, need to have an active part in this obedience.

I want DS and DD to know what DH and I expect from both of them and then obey (especially without delay!). Lord, please guide and support us to build and establish the right reward and discipline system. For me, I guess the most difficult virtue of this education is our own consistency. DH and I really need strength in that area, Lord.

I also need to show DS and DD how important obedience is by being obedient myself - to You and to others in authority over me. Thank You for helping me in this effort.

obey your parents in the Lord,
for this is right.
“Honor your father and mother” —
which is the first commandment with a promise —
“that it may go well with you
and that you may enjoy long life on the earth."
Ephesians 6:1-3
