Children who obey their parents in the Lord will receive a special blessing. I believe one blessing is the growth of their faith even at a young age. They learn early on that trusting God produces a faith that is strong – as they have more chances to experience God’s faithfulness.
How does a parent bring up a child in the discipline and instruction of the Lord, without provoking them to anger? Nobody, especially children, likes to be disciplined. The key, I think, is love. You can’t get angry at someone who you know genuinely loves and cares for you. I want to have that kind of relationship with my son.
