534 CHILDREN.

Psalms 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

God is calling all to become His children. This was the original position of mankind before our sin alienated us from Him. This is the position Jesus’ death is restoring to those who will accept His death as payment for their sin and accept His mastery over their lives.

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

God made man and woman to be united as one flesh and to raise their children to be children of God. The man cannot birth a child and the woman cannot have a child without a man. Both have their God given rolls to play in the birth, growth and maturing of children.

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

It is sad that we have taken one of our most important tasks and given it over to strangers.

Fathers are abandoning their children to death, divorce, and occupation, in the name of sex, prosperity, selfish pride, and personal gain.

Mothers are being forced away from their families by economics, emotional needs, or social conveniences.

This is giving us a false impression of God’s family and confusing His children as to their importance and blessings in His kingdom.

Men want to watch television rather than enjoy the simple pleasures of their children’s thoughts and actions.

This is NOT the way of God. HE does not take His eyes off His children. Their thoughts and actions are HIS GREATEST PLEASURES.

Proverbs 5:21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.

Parents not only have the pleasure of guiding the entire life of their children, but it is their God given responsibility to raise and instruct their child in Godly, healthy, and wholesome lifestyles; for FOR THEIR GOOD.

It is a man’s joy to have many, healthy, and respectful children.   

Psalms 127:4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

Psalms 127:5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

Jesus was raised by a Godly father and mother; not by a babysitter.

Children NEED TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO CHASTEN.

Revelation 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

God can give no higher a physical gift than children to a person.

Proverbs 17:6 Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.

God is not interested in whether we have a fast car, huge mansion, and a large bank account but He does want us to spend our time on our morals; teaching goodness to the children HE HAS GIVEN US.

I have often said that we tell others our heart and mind by our actions. We show, to the world, who and what we count most important, in our lives, by the time and attention we give each person and thing.

OUR CHILDREN SHOULD BE VERY HIGH ON OUR ‘IMPORTANT’ LIST.

Hebrews 2:13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.

Those who have repented and accepted Jesus as savior and Lord are God’s gift to Jesus and our children are God’s gift to us.

Let’s not disappoint God by throwing away our children into a wicked and sinful world.

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Good or bad, those children are a product of OUR TEACHINGS.
