    I surrender my soul in behalf of the sheep.—John 10:15.

    Husbands should imitate Jesus
    in showing affection for those under their care. Rather than
    harshly dominating his wife, a husband who desires God’s approval continues loving her “just
    as the Christ also loved the congregation.â€￾(Eph. 5:25)

    His words
    should be kind and considerate,for she is worthy of honor. (
    1 Pet.3:7) In training young ones, the
    family head should firmly uphold godly principles. However,he must not fail to show affection
    for his children. Needed discipline should be administered lovingly. Some young ones may
    take longer than others to get the sense of what is expected of them. In that case, a father
    should show them greater patience.

    When men consistently
    follow the example of Jesus, they create a home environment that
    is safe and secure. Their families enjoy the type of spiritual security that the psalmist sang about.


    —Ps. 23:1-6. w11 5/15 1:4, 7, 8

    Two Scriptures come to mind - Colossians 3:21: "You fathers, do not be exasperating your children, so that they do not become downhearted."

    Proverbs 24:3: "By wisdom a household will be built up, and by discernment it will prove firmly established."

    A wise father would take into consideration the personality make-up of each child, also allow for the fact that each child would have its own individual learning style. Or a child may have limitations. If a father keeps these factors in mind, he is less likely to exasperate a child.

    I don't want to sound too "preachy" here (I'm not a parent but have a lot of responsibility in my family) but I appreciated the thoughts expressed in the text. I watched my own parents train and instruct members of my family. Each person had their own issues and my parents were able to "tailor" the instruction to each individual's needs.
