Do You Let Your Child Know You Love Them?


“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.”Psalm 127:3

Do you treat your children like they are a gift from the Lord?

I hear fathers at football games hollering at their child if they make a mistake whle they are on the field. I always turn to look at that father, wondering if he has any idea how he is hurting his son and their relationship. Without knowing it, hopefully the father doesn't do it deliberately, he is tearing down his son's confidence. He is also embarrasing his son. And He is treating the child as an object.

You see, children want to make their parents proud. But when you are tearing them down, you are saying to them you can only be proud of them if they are doing great in the game.

Evidently you don't look at your child as a gift from God. Take a good look at your child. He/She  needs love and guidance from you. 

Put your arms around them. Tell them how much you love them and how proud you  are of them and that they are your children. That will do more for your child than if they won a thousand games.
