Our words are powerfully influential. The words we speak to our children are especially influential. Our children hear the words we speak - to them, to our spouses, and to others. Let's be very selective with our words. Let's speak words of grace to our children - words that will bless them and bring them up in the Lord.
Check out "Words of Grace, Part Four" and consider how Jesus' blessing of the little children influences the words we speak to our children!
