Making them feel loved: We loved you so much

 

 

Being a great father calls for a man to strengthen his connection to the most high. A spiritual warrior, like Paul, he must apply spiritual principles when fathering his children. Paul the apostle demonstrated the warmth of a mother, and the muscle of a father when fathering his spiritual children. “But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children,” (1 Th 2:7). Paul conveys “as ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children,” (1Th 2:11). We see Paul chooses a seldom-used Greek word for love, not the usual word for unconditional love or brotherly affection. This endearing term, conveys a strong, warm, spontaneous magnetism-used normally with a very young child.

Strangely, Paul is speaking to adults when he is using this term. This is because the need to be loved is one we never outgrow! He wanted them to feel loved. Fathers, more than anything else, that is what your children need from you. Regardless of gender, both sexes need to feel love of the HE energy.

Sharing your life with them. “We are delighted to share with you…our life.” How can daughter learn to have healthy relationships with men, or your son develop a healthy warrior identity, unless you share your life with them? Father, share your life with your children by:

(1)  Sharing your values. Children need to know what’s important to you and where your priorities lie, what you stand for and truly believe in.

(2)  Sharing how they can live by spiritual principles. Life will throw obstacles in their path, confusing them, even at wee ages. They need to know the ways of Light in order to make wise decisions in crucial moments.

(3)  Sharing moments of laughter and fun. Whether pulling back to back shifts, on the road for months, or doing the regular 9-5 gig, when you come home do your children scatter? Or gather around you? Are you fun to be around? Let them feel your light warrior ways is something to be enjoyed, not endured. The family that plays together, stays together!

(4)  Sharing with them the finer interests of life. Instead of condemning their music, taste in clothing etc, use differences as a platform to understanding each other better and introducing new alternatives.

(5)  Telling them how valuable they are to you. Don’t assume they know. “We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you…our lives, you had become so dear to us.” Tell them again, and again!
