Apostle Sergio Enríquez.
As we need to nurture properly physically we also need to nurture our spirit, now well when talking about family not everyone let him or herself be taught about our family. The relationship we could have with our children will impact their lives, the influence of a mother or father will be carried through all their lives, also we have to see how is our relationship with our parents; we have to analyze several things that could affect our present life. The Bible says to instruct the child in His way and He is old he won’t be moved.
There are several crises that a human lives then first one, to call it, the crisis of the immature age, it is a big change in his life if this child doesn’t receive the right attention the second crisis, that is the crisis of mature age, because there is not only physical, hormonal and emotional change.
How we handle these crises depends how the relationship with our parents is; we need to have defined our role model not based on human patterns but based in how our Heavenly Father is and try to be more like Him.
We learn from: our biological parental, taking the good things and rejection the bad ones, from our spiritual parents and on top from our heavenly Father.
Deuteronomy 1:32 (ESV)Yet in spite of this word you did not believe the LORD your God,
God as a Father leads by the hand not letting us by ourselves, we as parents try our children not to pass through deserts but this is wrong, it is necessary for them to live their own desert with a difference you as parent is with them supporting. This will shape the personality of our children. Let’s teach our children to fight their own battles. We have to show them the entrance but it is their choice to enter.
Deuteronomy 8:5 (ESV)Know then in your heart that, as a man disciplines his son, the LORD your God disciplines you.
We need to understand the discipline; now a days we see that human laws want to avoid the usage of discipline with our children; we have to discipline we do not have to apply it with anger, calmly analyzing what we will do. There must be a limit, a brake, for our children.
Proverbs 3:12 (ESV)for the LORD reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.
We need to know that if we are objects of discipline is because we are loved.
