Message of the Day: Fathers Do Not Be Too Severe With Your Children.

And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4, NKJV)

One of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20) states that we must honor our parents because by doing so would prolong our life. This was the promise of God and is a fact of nature. Fathers are cautioned against being too severe with their children, both here and in Colossians 3:21.

Parental authority was generally too austere then, as it is now generally too lax. Fathers are named because mothers tend to be more lenient. We suspect that back then, when change was slower and there were far fewer continuous external influences on the children, it was easier for parents to raise children as they themselves had been raised.

Parents must combine wise teachings with understanding discipline if they are to expect the children’s respect and obedience. Training must be done in such a way that children will not lose their confidence in them but shall love them.
