Children are an heritage of The Lord.
As a Father, I realize my great responsibility, and inability. I recognize my continual need for Jesus to be in control of my life. I realize that apart from Him I can do nothing. I am in constant need of His mercy and grace, and so are they, that they are little(or big) reflections of me, and that if I am irritated with their behavior, it is probably something they either learned from me, or I allowed into their life.
