As Advent begins we are reminded, “They shall beat their swords into plowshares.” (Is. 2:4) Of course this is counsel for countries and armies, but sometimes marriage is like a battleground. Is there a verbal “dagger” that you sometimes wield against your be-loved? Substitute a compliment.
“If you are King of the Jews, save your-self.” (Luke 23:37) What does it mean to be a King, President, Pope, Captain of a team, or any kind of lead-er? Does it mean you are important or get special privi-leges? Talk with your child about how to be a humble but effective leader. Can you name anyone who is?
