Kingsland is blessed with many men who are seeking God’s heart for their lives, interceding in prayer for the marriages and their kids, leading strong both spiritually, relationally and working hard to provide, all the while trusting God as the ultimate provider.
Psalm 131, written by King David, contains some very practical lessons on servant leadership that men can apply as they lead their homes.
1. Redefined Power | Power is the ability to create change. Smart parenting involves both the use of hard and soft power. Parents must balance their use of both and exercise wisdom, humility, and grace as they lead their children.
Do you tend to be too hard on your kids or too soft? What is the danger of these extremes?
2. Accepted Limits | Dads must help their children understand the value of boundaries. Doing so can help keep our kids on track.
What boundaries have you set for your kids and why? How do you explain to your kids the value of boundaries?
3. Faith-filled Contentment | Great leaders and great parents reach a maturity in their walk with God that anchors their souls to God’s faithfulness — so that when storms arise, or times are confusing, they can be at rest.
In what ways do you or should you model contentment for your kids that assures them you are trusting God?
