WHAT CHILDREN SEE
“Do nothing out of rivalry or vanity; but, in humility, regard each other as better than yourselves — look out for each other’s interests and not just for your own.” - Philippians 2:3-4, CJB
In our sinful nature, we all have the inclination to be hurt over something someone did or said to us. Question is, how do we as believers behave when this happens? We read our Bibles, we pray, we sing praises to the Lord. We model this to our children, but what else do we model to our children. Children learn from what they see and hear. There are many that when they get hurt by someone, want to hurt back. They may say hurtful things or gossip behind their backs. Unfortunately, our children see this too, and begin to model that same behavior. As it says in Matt. 7:12, “Always treat others as you would like them to treat you…” We learn this at congregation, but somehow fail to bring it home. It is important that we teach our children and grandchildren how to handle conflict. When we hurt, we pray. Ask God how to handle the hard relationships in our lives. Talk things out with people. Let them know you still love them. Our children model from what they see and hear. All lives are at stake.
