Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; They will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127:3-5)
Parenting is the ultimate way to raise up disciples. We’re not all called to full time ministry, but we’re all called to make disciples and feed our Father’s sheep.
It is time to get a vision for the next generation. What will your kids create that will change the world? Whatever it is, they will have a very difficult time accomplishing it without your care and wisdom.
Be intentional in raising your kids. Your kids are your story. Ask Holy Spirit what your child’s destiny is. Then take time to get to know your child well. This way you can start to form a strategy to prepare them for their future.
Try to think outside the box in raising your kids. Every child has a unique personality and learning style. It is better to work with their individuality than against it.
It is helpful to think of the parenting journey as raising adults, not taking care of kids. The nurture and training you give out now will affect generations to come. Your kids are your inheritance. Pour your whole heart into them!
