A Moment of Training- Cultivating Thankfulness
I might have this little exercise, training moment, go on for a few days. We will see how the Lord leads.
When you see an attitude in your child that does not honor the Lord, help them to develop the opposite trait that is God Honoring.
Here are just a few ideas we have done over the years:
Pride- esteem others better than yourself. Have children serve one another. Give them some creative ideas.. like doing the other child's chores. Or playing with a sibling instead of doing something they wanted.
Discontent- Give Thanks
Unkind words- have everyone go around the table and say something kind about the person next to them.
