It is love…

23 Sep

 It is love…  that causes us, as parents, not only be patient and kind with our children,

but to teach them to be patient and speak kindly to each other.

It is love… that does not give way for prideful boasting,

rather looks to build each other up.

It is love…   that motivates  us to instruct the siblings to consider others first,

not demanding their own way.

It is love… that reminds us to humbly recognize our own personal failures

and helps our children see theirs,  seeking forgiveness from each other.

It is love…  that  not only bears,

but learns to appreciate each other’s idiosyncrasies.

It is love… that helps us to believe in and encourage each other

and endures through the difficult times.

True love never fails.

    “Now remain faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” We love (and learn to love) because He first loved us. Love you guys!

    Amen to that Becky. What a responsibility God has entrusted to parents to raise them with love and to be loving. Only God can equip us to do that and I’m glad the outcome is in His powerful hands.
