Eph 6:4

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but raise them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.NET

Solomon and Dora were the only children of Elder and Deaconess Frank-Wise. They both didn’t turn out well. Solomon was convicted and was to go to prison because of a crime he passively committed- his friends were the real criminals. Dora was pregnant with the second illegitimate child and could not go further than secondary education. Their father had always been known as a strict disciplinarian so everyone wondered why his children turned out this way. Dora and Solomon were both very angry children because of the way their father treated them from childhood; he always provoked them to anger and they grew up angry and wanting to hurt him back.

Fathers or parents cannot keep provoking their children to anger and train them in the discipline and instruction of the lord at the same time. The two never goes together. That is why the word says "do not provoke them to anger BUT raise them in the discipline and admonition of the lord. The lord's discipline in not cruel, it is not always angry, it is not difficult to please, it does not compare you to others, it does not abuse you psychologically or physically, it is not rude, it is not selfish. Parents are never to do these things to their children. They are to be firm but loving and caring.

Go into today knowing that the lord God is also your father who trains you. He cares for you and sets an example for you to follow in training your children.

Prayer: Thank you father for your great love. I pray you help me walk worthy of it. I pray you help me be a good parent both to my biological children and to everyone you would send to me to teach and care for. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
