If we are forever irritated by their weaknesses, we miss the opportunity to show them the grace of God. Is not our Savior patient with us, bringing us to repentance? A loving response along with a heartfelt chat will do more for our children than the sternest of threats.

Lord Jesus, fill us with your Spirit today so we can reveal to our children the kind of love and patience You have for us.
