Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [1/11]

Colossians 3:21 (NIV)
Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.

You may have heard the expression, “it goes both ways.”  Well, yesterday we considered how important it is to honor our earthly parents.  Today, we are considering how important it is to encourage our children.  I expect many of us have experienced how an unkind word or action, especially from a parent, can discourage us.  May we find ways to encourage and lift up each other.  May the Lord help us not to become bitter or angry when we are faced with discouraging circumstances.  (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
