Words of Becoming

3 Feb

Genesis 49 1-28

More than you are what you eat! Our children are who we tell them they are. If we tell them they are clumsy and silly then they will be clumsy and silly. How we react in the little things everyday can determine what they will think of themselves and what they will become.

OUCH!!!!

How quickly to make small remarks to our children without even thinking, “you are so forgetful” , “you are just like your father”, etc
Good news. In Genesis 49 Jacob blesses each of his sons, speaking “words of becoming” over them. We can do the same thing!!!!

We can start feeding our children praise in the everyday moments of their lives, and it is never too late to start. What we tell them they are, our children will become. What we say is what we will get. Read 101 Ways to Praise Your Child.

Proverbs 25:11 A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver

Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Blessings to you and yours,
