Children!!

This morning I was reading through an article I received in an email from Terri Maxwell that had some excellent scripture references in it for children and issues that they face. I thought I would share some of these verses with everyone, and then make sure you look into Steve and Terri's website. They have some really neat resources for Christian parents, as well as a monthly Mom and Dad's Corner Article, and information about homeschooling.






Child is bickering with a sibling or being unkind:Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering. (Colossians 3:12)




Child is angry:But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. (Colossians 3:8)


Child is unhappy:Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. (Philippians 4:4)




Child is worried:Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)




Child isn't content:Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. (Philippians 4:11)




Child says, "It is too hard," when asked to do something:I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13)


Child isn't being kind to his siblings:Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. (Colossians 3:12-13) Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil. (1 Corinthians 13:4-5)




Child is lying:Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him. (Colossians 3:9-10)


Child isn't obeying:Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. (Colossians 3:20)




Child is proud:. . . Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. (1 Peter 5:5-6)




Not only would these be great for my children, they are definitely applicable to my life as well!
