Father's Day Honor
We look at it this way. The family is like a bucket with holes in it. Water represents the energy in family life and that energy is continually draining out because of the work of family life. We do a lot of work with meals, laundry, shopping, driving, and cleaning. In order for the family to work most effectively and not lose all of its energy, every person in the family needs to be adding energy. Sometimes children drain energy out of family life with bad attitudes making the job of working together more difficult.
God has instructed that honor be learned and demonstrated at home, but developing it at home is only the beginning of its benefit. Those who learn honor will be able to use it for the rest of their lives.
This idea of honor is a fun one to develop in family life and is developed in the book Say Goodbye to Whining, Complaining and Bad Attitudes in You and Your Kids, by Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN.
