Children Are A Gift From God
The Bible tells us that our children are a precious gift from God. Each and every one is a reward and a blessing: Our little bundle of hope, our pride and joy, one of our reasons for living.
The following are five of my favorite scriptures on this subject:
Psalm 139: 13-16 For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Proverb 22:6 tells us, Start children off on the way they should go, and when they are old they will not turn from it.
Proverbs 22:1 A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches.
Proverbs 17:6 tells us, Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.
Psalm 127:3-5 Children are a heritage from the LORD, off spring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.
