Day 13: Ephesians 6:4

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Ephesians 6:4

The word “anger” here can also mean discouragement. True godly discipline and instruction will not provoke our teen to anger and discouragement. When anger and discouragement are present, there is a deeper cause in either the parent’s life or the child’s life that needs to be drawn out, submitted to God, and worked on.


Day 13 Reflection:
