The Power of Words

Scripture of the day: "Let no corrupt communication proceed out our your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers." ~Ephesians 4:20

During the course of a day with all the responsibilities and tasks before us, we can easily become stressed and lash out verbally at our children.

I must admit that this has been an area in my life that I had to overcome. I didn't really lash out to others, but could easily respond with sarcasm which is just as bad. I am better, but daily I have to consciously work on my verbal responses and tone.

I am becoming more and more aware of the impact of how our family life as a child indirectly affects us as adults. It seems as though the older I get, the more I realize how certain parts of me, be it good, or not so good, chiefly come from habit or a way of life to which I have been accustomed.

Of course, I want to pass on the good things to my children, but I don't want to pass on the negative. Negative habits or ways can easily pass from generation to generation.

"..But be transformed by the renewing of your mind." ~Romans 12:2

I did not grow up in a christian home. Yes, my family went to church, and they were "good" people, but living for the Lord was not there goal.

The life of our home and our relationships with our children will affect them in someway for the rest of their lives.

Lord,
As homeschooling mothers, we have so much that we are responsible for. Help us to create the homelife for our families that will glorify you, and affect generations to come.

Amen.
