CHILDREN

Read: Psalm 127

Key Verse: “Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him.” - Psalm 127:3

Children are always a gift from the Lord! Sadly, millions of children are aborted, neglected, abused, and rejected. Your view of God forms your view of children.

They are a treasure, not a burden.  They are worthy recipients of your time, energy, and prayers because they are made in God’s image. Do you know any children that are without food, water, clothes, parents, or love? How can you make a difference?

Solomon, the author of this psalm, had many children. When was the last time you thanked God for your kids? When you are losing your patience as a parent, remember this psalm. If you do not have any biological children, who are some kids that you can support and mentor? If you are a follower of Jesus, helping children should be one of your greatest joys in life.
