Heavenly Father, what a lot there is to assimilate and implement in Paul's simple instruction, for father's not to exasperate their children so they will not lose heart. Forgive us for the way we have allowed biblical principles and godly practice to be gradually removed from our homes and Christian churches. Help us individually and corporately to return to the truth of Your word, so that children will understand the need to obey and respect their parents... as parents bring up their children in the fear and nurture of the Lord - through wise discipline; gracious encouragement and godly respect. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
