Why is it important that you always bless your child? Well, that’s what I hope to answer in this post.
One of the words I often heard thrown around loosely while growing up was blockhead. I heard some parents yelling at their children using this word or even using it as a form of correction after a child would make a simple mistake. All the while failing to realize the impact that it would have in their child’s life.
The child grows up and does poorly at school and has a lack of self confidence or self worth which often results in the child not releasing their full potential.
Cursing our children and not knowing it
Unfortunately, the next thing to come after this bombardment was branding.
The child is seen as being mentally weak or a slow learner at school and this becomes accepted throughout the child’s life.
Yes! All too often I have heard parents or family members brand their children with negative words while not fully realizing the repercussions their words would have in the life of that child.
I believe this stems from a lack of knowledge or understanding of what exactly it is we are given or perhaps we just forget along the way due to the perils that we face in life.
The gift that is a Child
I strongly believe that:
- Every child is an original.
- Every child is unique.
- Every child is gifted.
- Every child has immense potential trapped within them.
- Every child has a purpose.
Why have I brought this up?
Well, I am hoping that you as a soon to be dad will realize that you are not just having a baby or doing your part in filling the earth.
No! It is so much more than that; and just understanding this will help shape your words so the only words you speak as a dad, are words that Bless your child.
To fully understand what you are being given in one statement would be:
“You are being given an original gift; that is unique, filled with untapped ability [potential] and is here for a purpose.”
You can have a water break now just to allow this to sink in.
Constant state of check
I am in a constant state of check with my words and what I release into the lives of my children. This is made more apparent in the life of my son Ethan who is now 5 years old and is still crawling and improving his speech.
While at times I do get frustrated and show tough love by saying a firm
“Get up and walk!” I am always mindful of the words that I speak into his life and situation.
Making sure to always bless and never curse my son.
