On Being A Godly Parent
I am in need of prayer. I feel as if I have done a disservice to my youngest son in that I don't feel I have parented him the way in which I parented my two older children. There is a 10 year difference in age between him and my oldest son. He was an after vasectomy baby a total suprise gift. I feel I have not emersed him enough in Gods word. I have not always shown him a good example of Christ and how to treat others with love and acceptance. He is my responsibility and I have not gone about raising him with the same drive I did my others. He has a very controlling personality and he can be very loving when he wants to. He is very guarded with his emotions when around others unless it is dislike or disdain he seems to show that very clearly to others. I am going to start today praying for him trying to be a better example. I am going to try to find a good Bible Study that we can do together that teaches love of others. I need to be more disciplined with him in what he is allowing into his mind. I myself need to do the same for myself. I love all my children and I want to raise them in a way that pleases my Heavenly Father.
