Lord, thank You that when I believe in Your death for me on the cross, I become a new creation. My life is now hidden in You. Help me not to fall into worldly ways of parenting. Renew my mind that I may be transformed to be the godly parent You want me to be. Help me to make a conscious decision to be a Christ-like parent and, with Your Spirit’s help, become more compassionate, kind, humble, gentle and patient, forgiving, and loving toward my child (Colossians 3:12–14).
Prayer of the Day
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
—2 Corinthians 5:17
You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
