SONG 89 Listen, Obey, and Be Blessed (Luke 11:28) 1. If we have listened to Christ, will we show it? His teaching shines as it shows us the way. It makes us happy to hear and to know it, But we’ll be blessed if we know and obey. (CHORUS) Listen, obey, and be blessed When you hear God’s will expressed. If you’d be happy and enter his rest, Listen, obey, and be blessed. 2. Our way of life, like a house, gives protection When it is built on the rock, not on sand. If we apply Jesus’ loving direction, We’ll build a life which on bedrock will stand. (CHORUS) Listen, obey, and be blessed When you hear God’s will expressed. If you’d be happy and enter his rest, Listen, obey, and be blessed. 3. Just as a tree rooted deep by the waters Gives of its fruit when each season arrives, If we obey as God’s own sons and daughters, We’ll all be blessed and enjoy endless lives. (CHORUS) Listen, obey, and be blessed When you hear God’s will expressed. If you’d be happy and enter his rest, Listen, obey, and be blessed. (See also Deut. 28:2; Ps. 1:3; Prov. 10:22; Matt. 7:24-27; Luke 6:47-49.) IMG_6298.mov
Lesson for today. (3 John 4) Certainly, raising a child is one of the most taxing yet fulfilling, and frustrating yet rewarding, tasks any human can attempt. As one father said, “you only get one shot at raising your child.” Given the enormous influence parents have on the health and happiness of their children, you may feel a strong need for trustworthy advice on how to be a better parent. Seek the advice of the one Person who knows most about how to raise children—the Creator of human life, Jehovah God. His Word, the Bible, contains both direct advice and practical examples that can help you become a better parent. “I will give advice with my eye upon you,” he promises.—Psalm 32:8. http://m.wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/102004809?q=raising+children&p=par
"Every man must be swift about hearing, slow about speaking, slow about wrath.” (James 1:19) Generally, children love their parents, and parents love their children. This is especially true among God’s people. Some families agree to spend less time watching television or using the computer. Others decide to eat at least one meal together each day. Family worship is a wonderful opportunity for parents and children to get to know one another better as they study the Bible together. The Bible says: “A person’s thoughts are like water in a deep well, but someone with insight can draw them out.” (Proverbs 20:5, Today’s English Version) When anyone is replying to a matter before he hears it, that is foolishness on his part and a humiliation.” (Proverbs 18:13) If you stay calm and listen, you may be able to understand the reason for your child’s “wild talk.” (Job 6:1-3) You can help your child only if you understand the whole situation. As loving parents, listen to your children and try to understand them so that you can say something that really helps them. 4 No greater joy do I have than this: that I should hear that my children go on walking in the truth." (3 John 4) We will make mistakes. So be quick to say “I’m sorry.” Forgive freely. “Be harmoniously joined together in love.” (Colossians 2:2) Love has power. It helps us to be patient and kind. Love helps us to stay calm and to forgive. “It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7) If you keep showing love, communication in your family will get better and better. This will make you happy and will honor Jehovah. http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/402013365?q=james+1%3A19&p=par#h=28 IMG_4837.MP4
