FATHERS BE REAL FATHERS AND KIDS BE OBEDIENT TO PARENTS
20Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
21Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.
Colosssians if full of great rules to live by!! IF we would all adhere to them. Todays society is full of single mothers and children with no Fathers at home teaching their children GODS ways and not societies!! And some that are there are not doing their duties as GODLY parents. Which brings us to the families breakdown and what society wants so there is no GOD in the home and parental rights being given to govermental control.They have made it so easy for children to have a easy way out with lack of parents raising children in Godly homes and teachings of the BIBLE which leads to someone else being in control, because of uncontrolable children that are choosing to go wayward of society and not GOD.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and fathers do your duties of parents and children OBEY your parents!!!
3: 20-21 Children need to be handled with care. This includes administering discipline with love. Parents should not aggravate (embitter) them by nagging, deriding, or destroying their self-respect so that they quit trying. The opposite problem occurs, however, when parents are afraid to correct a child for fear of stifling some aspect of the child’s personality or losing his or her love. Single parents or parents who cannot spend much time with a child may be prone to indulgence. But such children need the security of guidance and structure. Boundaries and guidelines will not embitter a child. Instead, they will set the child free to live securely within them. NIV Life Application Study Bible.
