Parenting In A Demanding World
We are living in a very demanding world which makes being a parent very hard. As our careers take off, we achieve promotions and move up yo the next level, our time becomes very limited, especially in today's world. It starts to become difficult to allocate our time with our families and we sometimes even begin to overlook the basics.
Our spouses and children can see that they are being ignored from our lack of presence in their lives. Many of us put more of our time in on our jobs than we do with our families. The Holy Bible speaks about how to work and it also instructs us about the fruits of our labor. While those things are mentioned in the Holy Bible, it is also instructional on marriage and children.
As parents, we need to show our families that we love them more than we love our work. We must understand that our families are gifts from God, and these gifts should not be minimized. Our families need our attention and they also require our affection.
As parents, we need to show our families the depth of our love by teaching our children how to allocate their time by putting family first and always teaching them the difference between right and wrong decisions. This is very hard to do if we do not spend the required amount of time with them.
We should exhibit our love for the Lord and teach our children how to pray about each and every little thing. We should make it our business to see to it that they learn the Holy Bible Scriptures, because this is the book of instruction on how to live life on this earth. When our children see our example that Christ is the center of our lives, we should hope that they will emulate our examples and create beautiful memories that will be passed on to the next generation and hopefully last lifetimes.
If we are not careful, in today's world, we will find that we have exchanged the love of our family and home for the dedication and attention to our professional business; while living in the constant motion that robs our souls from memories and the bonding of our families. Truly, amazing things can happen when our families come together in the good times and also the bad times.
Our job on this earth is to produce and put forth our greatest efforts to honor the Lord in all that we do. This is a testimony that we should live, a legacy we should leave, and our faith in God that stands firm in our seasons of life.
It has been my pleasure to share another inspirational blog with you all.
