If we have an opportunity to manifest ourselves and transmit our values, let us not hesitate to walk the path of healing. An example is worth a thousand words, learn why in the following article.
"Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, 13 because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment." James 2:12-13
Perhaps we find ourselves on any given day, taking care of a little boy or girl, a moment of attention occurs: when it is our turn to set an example in a situation.
We have to stand firm and be as simple as possible when transmitting an idea. Maybe we are in front of a son or daughter, a nephew or granddaughter, (no matter who), but we have to be very transparent in what we want to say.
This may be an opportunity to bring a life experience or a story about the Faith that the Holy Spirit transmits to us to these beings of light.
"For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love." 2 Peter 1:5-7
As little boys and girls, we are allowed to be in a way that we often do not fully understand.
This is an age where beings discover and learn in different ways and manners. In many situations children look for adults to impose some kind of limit on them, thereby adopting a defiant attitude.
It is in these types of scenarios that we can try to approach an example of faith. Either in a story, or with a reading of a Biblical passage. It will be the opportunity to approach in a learning context with the Word of the Lord.
"Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons." John 2:6
It is of utmost importance to support our words by example. We must not leave our words empty of content, since in this way we promote the generation of a void in the discourse, in the teaching we want to offer our sons and daughters.
Many times, it is better to be silent and do, to demonstrate our teaching in such a way that that little creature sees what we do, and imitates us, instead of listening to a speech that can easily be blown away by the wind.
Let us remember how Jesus and all his wonderful work, which overflows with love of neighbor and speaks of the acts of the most holy and how they define him, how through example he teaches, loves and takes his word to those who need it most..
"Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, 21 equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen." Hebrews 13:20-21
Let us remember then that we have the most valuable tool at our fingertips, which is the word of God, which is none other than the key that opens the doors to the treasure He left us: His eternal love.
