As fathers, Paul tells us we are to raise our children in the “training and instruction of the Lord.” We are not to “exasperate” our children. What a challenge, we all know how trying children can be. How do you think God feels with us? We constantly exasperate Him. We read over and over in the Bible of how the Israelites turn to their own ways. We are guilty of it in our own lives, trying to do it our own way instead of God’s way. Let us be careful to study God’s word and follow His instruction; just as we are to do with our children.
1. Why do we always want to do things our way?

Challenge: Make it a priority to study God’s word and see what his instructions are for our lives.
