Excerpt from Promises from God for Parents by T.D. Jakes
Love is kind and patient,
never jealous, boastful,
proud, or rude.
Love isn't selfish
or quick tempered.
It doesn't keep a record
of wrongs that others do.
(1 Corinthians 3:4 5)
A parent's love for a child is a mighty force. And yet, it sometimes seems that our children can test us like no others. At times they seem ungrateful, disrespectful, selfish, and downright defiant. Just ask any parent who lives with a teenager! But although we may be pushed so far as to lose our temper, we should always remember that our children are precious gifts from God. A child is a living, breathing testament that our Father loves us and is honoring us by entrusting us with the care of one of His children. What a responsibility! We get to be God's earthly counterpart, caring for our children the way that He cares for us. Love your children the way God loves you faithfully and unconditionally.
YOUR PROMISE TO GOD&
Sometimes that child just wears on my last nerve! But, Heavenly Father, I will use Your example and embrace him with a fierce, steadfast love.
