Celebrating the gift of children
"Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from Him" - Psalm 127:3-4
Children are truly a gift from God. They bring so much joy, laughter, and even challenges into our lives. As parents, we are blessed with the responsibility of raising these precious gifts of God to be faithful, kind, and compassionate individuals who seek after Him. "Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from Him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth." - Psalm 127:3-4.
In Psalm 127, we see that children are a heritage from the Lord and a reward from Him. As parents, we are entrusted with this incredible responsibility to nurture and guide them in the ways of the Lord. It is our privilege to love, care for, and teach our children, so they may grow up to be strong and courageous individuals who love and serve the Lord with all their hearts.
However, parenting can be difficult at times. It can be easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and forget to cherish the precious moments we have with our children. Let us not forget that our children are a gift from God, and we should celebrate and enjoy them each day.
So today, let us take a moment to thank God for the gift of children and the privilege of parenting. Let us pray that God will give us the wisdom, patience, and love we need to guide our children in the way they should go. May we celebrate the beauty and joy of parenthood and cherish every moment with our precious children.
Pray with us
Dear God, thank You for the gift of children. We thank You for entrusting us with the responsibility of raising these precious gifts to love and serve You. Please give us the wisdom, patience, and love we need to guide them in the way they should go. Help us to cherish every moment with our children and to celebrate the beauty and joy of parenthood. We ask this in Jesus' name, Amen.
