Raising sons to value good character...
This is an excerpt of the book
Personal Help for Boys
Building a Foundation of Godly Character for Tomorrow's Men
by the Pearables that my oldest son is currently reading through.
Boys will make mistakes, like all children will,
but we need to share the patience of the Father with them.
And when we make mistakes as imperfect parents,
we need to model humility and ask for forgiveness.
It is my hearts prayer that my five sons will truly learn what godly character is from a young age. While we try to model godliness, have available other godly role models, study and teach them the word of God-- we know that only God can lasso the heart, and that is the case for all children, and it is the prayer for each of my children.
"Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him."
We need to encourage them daily in doing what is right without growing weary ourselves.
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
