Dear Father,

Thank-you that when You are at the center of something it cannot fail. When we follow Your plans we do not labor in vain. May we see children as You do – a heritage given to us by You. They are a great reward from You. Like the arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are our children. With every blessing comes responsibilities, so by the power of the Holy Spirit, may we fulfill our responsibilities toward our children in love.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

Psalm 127:1-5  NKJV  

“Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, To sit up late, To eat the bread of sorrows; For so He gives His beloved sleep. Behold, children are a heritage from 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. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.”
