On Wednesdays I post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on Marriage, Parenting, or Life. Four Qualities at the core of Jesus are Respect, Humility, Servanthood, and Compassion. These are the same four qualities that will help your child be similar to Jesus in all their associations with others.
Jesus showed RESPECT to everyone, including the Pharisees who did not respect Him. A child may feel free to disagree with others but should always respect everyone even if another person has a differing opinion.
The Bible says, “Jesus HUMBLED Himself on the cross for the sins of the world.” True humility is not thinking less of yourself but thinking of yourself less. A child with humility will not have a superior attitude and look down upon others but instead view everyone as an equal.
Jesus “came not to be served but to SERVE.” Likewise, a healthy child with a servant’s heart will give to others in various ways by putting the interests of others above their own. Serving is giving to others without expecting anything in return.
Finally, the Bible says Jesus had “COMPASSION” on those who did not believe He was the Son of God who opens the door to heaven. A child having both sympathy and empathy for others will possess a compassionate heart for everyone.
For a Child: Example is not the best teacher, EXAMPLE IS THE ONLY TEACHER! So ESSENTIAL ATTITUDES ARE CAUGHT from a parent more than taught by a parent!
