Spiritual Food for Thought for the Weekend

Proverbs 19:11, 18 (NIV)

“A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense . . . Discipline your children, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to their death.”

Are you an impatient person?  Patience and wisdom are tied together here.  We get into a lot of unnecessary heartaches because we are not patient with our words and our decisions.  We don’t like waiting; we like our opinions heard and heard now.  Be patient with someone today.  Spend time asking for the wisdom to wait patiently. 

Are you a parent? How are you at disciplining your children?  You and I need much wisdom in this area.  Pray for your kids tonight. Write out a prayer for each child.  Ask God for insight in this area of disciplining your child.

Bible Reading for Today: Ezekiel 20

Prayer:  Lord, teach me to patiently overlook an offense. Lord, help me to discipline my child (children) with love and wisdom.   Amen.
