“A wise woman builds her house, but a foolish woman tears it down with her bare hands.” It is said that “a rod of pride is in the mouth of a fool, but the lips of the wise will preserve them.”
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
“Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles.”
As moms, we can shape our children’s lives and the paths they take. One of the best ways to teach and train our kids is through what we say. We can help our kids feel good about themselves, set them on the path to future success, and give them a sense of meaning in life by giving them life through our words.
No one can say enough about how powerful a single word can be. They can either help or hurt others, build or tear them up. As moms, we have a fantastic chance to bring life into our children’s lives through words. Our words can change how they see themselves, how they make decisions, and how their lives will turn out.
We need to tell our kids positive things and encourage them often if we want them to have healthy self-confidence. We can help them feel better about themselves by telling them things that make them feel good and give them power. We can get them to believe in themselves and work toward their goals by highlighting their unique qualities, skills, and benefits.
Speaking Sense of Identity and Purpose
How we talk to our kids can also shape who they are and their beliefs. When we pray over children, we can help them see that they have worth, value, and purpose in God’s eyes by saying words of life over them. We can remind them of how much they can do and encourage them to recognize and use the gifts and skills that God has given them.
As Christian moms, it’s an honor to be able to tell our kids about God’s promises. We can speak blessings, favor, wisdom, and safety into other people’s lives. By praying God’s Word and speaking His truth over them, we can bring God’s power and direction into their lives.
Our words affect our children both on an individual level and on the atmosphere in our homes as a whole. We can create a positive and helpful environment by choosing to use words like “love,” “life,” and “encouragement.” Words can help people feel like they belong, talk to each other freely, and build deep connections.
It’s crazy to think that the words we choose to use can keep, change, or even control the way our lives go. The Bible compares the tongue to the rudder of a ship to show how something as small as the tongue can steer our lives in the right or wrong direction. Our words can change how our children feel.
The Call to a Powerful Motherhood
It’s our job to be wise in our homes. This piece of advice also applies to what we say. The wise can keep and protect their homes with the words they say. We should think carefully about the things we say because they can shape not only the futures of our children and husbands but also the futures of our households as a whole.
If we want to be powerful mothers, we need to remember that a passionate prayer helps much more than the prayer of a person who is not righteous. Since prayer is a big part of our lives, we can help our kids more when they are having trouble when we pray with them. Whether we pray for their safety, direction, or healing, our prayers can make a big difference.
Let’s take on the responsibility of building our homes with the power of prayer and the things we say. We can realize that we have the power to save, change, and lead our families down the best road.
Instructing Children the Godly Way
As moms, we are responsible for a lot of things, including building our homes and raising our children. The things we say, pray for, and show them can make a big difference in their lives. It is very important to know how important it is to teach our children the ways of the Lord and to draw their attention to Jesus, who is the best example for all of us.
Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
We also need to be aware of how the Holy Spirit speaks to us daily. When the Holy Spirit tells us to pray, we shouldn’t ignore Him. Instead, we should promise to pray passionately, knowing that the words we say have a big effect on our children’s lives.
According to Proverbs 14:1, where we get the phrase “the wise woman builds her house,” we know that when we build our homes, we need to be smart. We are required to put the Lord’s ways first and teach our children the truth that he has shown us. It’s important to remember that following the kingdom of God shouldn’t come before getting a good education or making a lot of money, which are more important in the long run.
We must instill in our children the importance of honoring their mother and father, as written in Ephesians 6:1. By teaching them this Bible rule and passing it on to them, we make a big difference in their health and lives. When our kids act in a way that makes other people feel bad, we need to bring them back to the Bible.
Lastly, we need to point our kids toward Jesus, just like Jesus did when He was young and saw that God had a plan for His life. Jesus knew how important it was to help out with his father’s work, and we should teach our children the same thing. As moms, it’s our job to lead our kids to Jesus, help them build a personal relationship with Him, and show them how to live their lives in accordance with His will.
Teaching our kids how the Lord wants them to live their lives is both a privilege and a duty. People’s lives can change in a way that lasts if we pray for them well, learn about them, and lead them to Jesus. It’s important to keep in mind that when you teach a child how to act, you set them on a path that will guide them even as they get older.
We must recognize that the fact that our words have so much weight gives them a lot of power. Let’s make a conscious choice to speak words of life over our children, enlightening them, encouraging them, and reminding them of their value and importance in this world. When we do these things, we create a loving and happy place for our children to grow and reach the full potential God has given them. We pray that the way we talk will be a reflection of God’s love, kindness, and truth and that it will shape the lives of our children for many years to come.
We have to be careful about tending to their spiritual growth and assisting them in accomplishing the purpose that God has given them.
