Words can hurt.

Posted on 5/12/2018 by Greg Yoder

Many of us can say we’ve said things that have hurt our kids. What impact does it have? While God can use our biggest mistakes to accomplish His will, why add fuel to the fire? Mom and Dad, we need to watch our words. The most loving Christian home can be marred by our weakest moment. Our words can be very hurtful. What happens when our words become hurtful? Our kids lose trust in us, and these words can push them away. When we notice hurtful words coming out of our mouths, the key is to stop. We need to ask our kids to forgive us. Then God. Even in these difficult moments, God can teach lessons. Modeling humility can be the best lesson we can teach our kids.
