Came across this great article on thinking through ways that we can provoke our children to wrath.
Here are the top ones that I struggle with:
– By constantly criticizing them and not encouraging them. When they feel they can never please us enough.
– By always lecturing them and never listening to them
– By disciplining them for childishness or weakness, not for sin
– By failing to ask their forgiveness when we sin against them
“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger . . . ” (Ephesians 6:4)
Which ones do you struggle with?
