Word Of The Month

“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward.” – Psalm 127:3 ESV

 

People have similar journeys – starts as a baby, then as a child before reaching adulthood and into the senior years (if blessed). In Singapore, October is the month to celebrate Children’s Day. It is also the month of “trial” as they go through the year-end examinations.  Great emphasis is placed on academic excellence. This stresses many children and their parents.

 

The Bible tells us that children are a heritage (inheritance) from God. Parents have a solemn responsibility to raise them in the right way. Studies are only a part of parenting. As Christians, we need to look at other important aspects of raising children.

 

Proverbs 22:6 ESV, says, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” On the flipside, Proverbs 1:8 ESV says, “Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and forsake not your mother’s teaching.”

 

Parents are to teach and train their children in godly wisdom and living. To do this, we must know God and His word. It is imperative that the training is relevant. We need to be aware of the changes in society and culture. Beyond the best effort, parenting requires prayer that God will work in their lives.

 

I encourage parents and children to build strong relationships. Let us love one another no matter how old we become!
