“Blended families are just that – you put a bunch of people from different backgrounds together – shake em up and see how things come out”
Anyone know anything about blended families? Ever have that time in your life when you are at a cross roads between the kids and the hubby and then you run interference to avoid conflict in the house? How many of you are there today? Let me just tell you to go ahead and save yourself some long-term suffering and just let them work it out….far better for them to work through the tough times…work through their frustrations/problems….than for you to run interference, to avoid conflict and then they never work through the issues…having said that…there are several scriptures to reference to make sure you are handling these issues the way they need to be. Lets look at Ephesians 6:1 – 4 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”(this is the first commandment with a promise), “That it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land…” “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord…” It’s all about balance – the balance of love and discipline. And moms, this will help you in the long run !!!
