Character — Awareness

Last week, my husband, Edric, gave a devotion on the character of awareness. He asked the kids to memorize James 1:19 “Be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger.” Edric explained that one of the ways awareness can be practiced in the home is to avoid making judgments right away. As he talked with the boys, he shared that they can apply this by listening to one another first when they are frustrated or upset with each other. Awareness, according to him, also means being aware of one’s emotions and controlling them.

I took a video of the boys reciting their verse as I often do with their memory verses. It helps them to develop public speaking skills and reinforce what Edric is teaching for the week.
