by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – Show The Way For Your Children
We talked yesterday about DELIGHTING in every task we have to face. This was Jesus’ example to us. Now we can be an example to our children. When they see us delighting in motherhood, delighting in preparing meals, and delighting in the work we have to do, they will learn how to have the right attitude in life too. Your children will learn by your attitude in the little things of life far more than all you say to them.
Do you find it hard to get your children to have a right attitude about work? What are they learning from you? Do they hear you complaining and sighing, or rejoicing in the activities of the day?
Teach your children to have an attitude of delighting to work, delighting to do their chores, and delighting to obey. Yes, this should be their attitude toward obedience too. Anything less is not the way Jesus revealed for us.
Show them the way, mother.
