Start the New Year with smiles from the heart, loving and kind words, and loving embraces.
Fathers, your children pick up very quickly the tensions that build up between you and your wife. These tensions are like dark grey clouds and cold draughts of air that dampen their young spirits. Sometimes, these tensions are vocalized and hurtful. Sometimes they are the "silent treatment" of cold frosty hardness of resentful indifference, but without saying a word, the vibes speaker louder than words. No matter how it is expressed, is definitely not of God and is most damaging to the well-being of our children, as well as ourselves.
As Christians we have no excuse for this type of behavior and we are immature to allow it to continue. If we can't shine our lights brightly in our home, what right have we to shine anywhere else? For goodness sake, are we so blind that we cannot see that tension in the home damages our family?
Brighten the corner where you are. Start right now to wear a lot more smiles towards your wife. You can do this in the power of Jesus' name. Start right now to speak loving and encouraging words to your wife.
You do not have to be a victim when you can be a healer. A lover. And a winner. These positive responses will eventually bring a good response.
