"Quick-tempered leaders are like mad dogs - cross them
and they bite your head off. It's a mark of good character
to avert quarrels, but fools love to pick fights."
Proverbs 20:2-3 (The Message)
Yup... tonight, I was a quick-tempered leader. Please Lord... help me have better character and not be so quick to react to my kids' misbehavior!
"God-loyal people, living honest lives,
make it much easier for their children."
Proverbs 20:7 (The Message)
Yup... if I had been putting God first tonight, I would have made it much easier on my kids. But, because I wasn't patient, I missed an opportunity to parent with grace. Thank God for HIS perfect grace which covers my sins - and for a humble heart that can seek forgiveness from my family!
