What does Scripture encourage us to do and Why?

Finally, don’t allow this lesson to be the last time that you bring up this verse. Scripture encourages us to meditate. This word was the same word used in the Old Testament to refer to the way that a cow would chew his food over a long period of time. This is a verse that could easily come up in your relationship with your child. And you need to make sure that you are practicing what you preach before you demand it of them. If your child gets angry, be careful how you respond. If we are not careful, we can begin thinking that our authority over our children gives us the right to treat them in harsh ways. It doesn’t. Paul reminded his readers, “Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged” (Colossians 3:21). Be just as aware of how you are interacting with your children as you are of how they are interacting with others. Your example will be a far better teacher than any lecture or sermon you could give them.

Let Proverbs 15:1 be your meditation this week.
