父母與子女 (1) 轉貼自每日箴言

箴言   22:1-6, May – 29

父母與子女(1)「你們作父親的,不要惹兒女的氣,袛要照著主的教訓和警戒養育他們。」 弗6:4

Phil McGraw 博士在他的著作《家庭第一》中說︰「要成為好父親的最佳方法,是成為一位好丈夫。」對於為人妻者,他可能同樣會說︰「要成為好母親,最佳方法是成為一位好太太。你的子女需要的,正是這樣的一個父母相愛相敬重的溫馨家庭。正如有人說︰「家,應該是子女時常都渴望回來的地方。

子女在家裏需要有安全感、被接納和得到鼓勵。有時,父母會惹怒子女,令他們洩氣,打擊年青人的熱忱。有些子女常常害怕被人輕視或批評,有些父母會輕率地批評子女的行為,而自己也沒有立下甚好榜樣。當我們孩子年紀還小時,常常因為打翻東西而被我責罵,直至有一天我把整杯牛奶打翻在自己身上,我才開始明白他們的感受。自此以後,我再也不提打翻東西的事了。

基督徒父母除了鼓勵子女外,當然更要在主裏鍛鍊和警戒子女。我們有責任幫助子女與主建立親密而個人的關係。當然,讓子女看見你與耶穌的親密關係,是最有效的方法。

Proverbs 22:1-6, May – 29

PARENTS AND CHILDREN (1)

“Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training . . . of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4

In his book Family First, Dr. Phil McGraw writes, “The best way to be a good father to your children is to be a good husband to your wife.” He might have said the same thing about wives: “The best way to be a good mother to your children is to be a good wife to your husband.” Children deserve no less. As parents, we owe it to our children to provide them with a home where husband and wife love and respect each other. In the words of someone else, “Home should be the place children can’t wait to get to.”

Children need to feel safe, accepted, and encouraged at home. Sometimes parents exasperate their children and deflate their youthful enthusiasm. Some children live in constant fear of being put down or criticized. Some of us criticize our children for things we ourselves are guilty of. When our children were small, I used to get on them for spilling things, until one day I spilled a whole glass of milk over myself. It was the last time I ever mentioned spilling again.

Christian parents, of course, go beyond encouragement to train and instruct their children in the Lord. We owe it to our children to help them develop a close and personal relationship with the Lord. Of course, a powerful way to do that is to let your children see your own close connection with Jesus.

你們是世界的鹽,你們是世上的光

馬太福音5:13-16.

你們是世上的鹽… 你們是世上的光。城造在山上是不能隱藏的。人點燈,不放在斗底下,是放在燈臺上,就照亮一家的人。你們的光也當這樣照在人前,叫他們看見你們的好行為,便將榮耀歸給你們在天上的父。

兩千年前耶穌的教誨,在今天依然是基督徒該隨時思想著的道理。

1517年,馬丁路德發起宗教改革,在歐洲掀起一場改變世界的革命。

2012的今天,科技改革,全世界掀起一場溝通方式的革命。

願新世代的媒體可以成為新一代的燭台,照亮網路世界,繼續為耶穌作鹽作光!
