Parent Minute

Sometimes it's difficult being gentle.

Posted on 7/12/2016 by Greg Yoder
We continue with a look at the fruit of the Spirit as it relates to parenting. Frankly, gentleness in parenting isn’t always easy, especially if you’re like me when you’re a little intense. The dictionary defines it as being mild in temperament or behavior; kind or tender, moderate in action, effect, or degree, not harsh or severe. Does that describe our parenting? If it doesn’t, we should probably start working on it. Titus 3:2 says be gentle. Proverbs 15:1 tells us a soft answer turns away wrath. There are moments I get frustrated as a parent. As in any situation where I’m facing the temptation to sin, I have to remember the Holy Spirit to help me choose correctly. Be obsessed with God.
