Ephesians 6:4 is another reading in the bible that deals with Fatherhood.
To me Ephesians 6:4 talks about how we as fathers and dads should not pick on or pick at our kids due to what they did or are doing.
This doesn’t mean not to correct them but don’t keep getting on them to stop without doing the correction part of it.
This also tells fathers to raise their children up with good values, kindness, and love like it is taught in the bible. To look at everyone the same way and to not judge someone for anything they do or did.
These truly talk to us as fathers and dads to how to raise our children in general.
Here are two different bible translations of Ephesians 6:4
New International Version (NIV)
4 Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
4 And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
I like that one too.. When I first read it I had to smile, “do not exasperate your children”… Never mind when the children exasperate us!
