Hugs and words of encouragement are building blocks for the family.
Proverbs 16 23-24 – “The heart of the wise teaches his mouth and adds learning to his lips. Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.”
Hugs and words of encouragement are the building blocks your children need. Their self-image and confidence is dependent on how you interact with them. Make it a habit to hug them often and acknowledge whatever they achieve in school, sports, or the Arts. Your presence and open display affection to your children will help them develop the sense of security they need. Proverbs 23:22 asks your children to ” listen to your father who begot you.” Tender, loving words will open the ears of your children, and they eagerly look to You for wisdom and direction
A father’s prize is reflected in his children.
1 Corinthians 9:24 – “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.”
God has given you a great prize in your children. How you nurture and influence them will shape the man or woman they become. Scripture encourages you to run the race of fatherhood in such a way that you not only received the price of salvation for yourself but that your children do, as well. Proverbs 13:22 says, “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.” When your children receive the gift of Salvation and experienced a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you have been given the Greatest Prize a father could receive – to watch your children walk in the Lord. Let your own walk of Faith clearly reflect the love of God for all your children to see
