“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.”
Challenge: BE PRESENT WITH YOUR “PRESENTS” TODAY!!!
This is a good way to remember to enjoy and engage with the children God gave us as our best gifts from Him!
I think about mothers in the bible and how it must have been easier to treasure their children “back in the day.” The pace of life was slower. There were no cars, no computers, no smart phones!
Let’s commit to letting nothing get in the way from being fully present in our children’s lives.
Listen to them intently.
Play with them. Read to them.
HAVE FUN WITH THEM!
The Lord is going to be watching and loving seeing us enjoy the most precious gifts He has given us! Let’s commit to making this a reality this year. Everyday we will be pulling back a layer of the wrapping paper from these incredible gifts from God as we watch our children mature and grow.
Question: How does viewing our children as a gift from the Lord, as Psalm 127:3 says, change our parenting?
What small change can you make to create a better big difference? (Less phone, etc?) Another Challenge: Think about (meditate) on this verse today:
“Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from Him.” Psalm 127:3
I have good news for you: Thinking and praying about God’s word can be very powerful. Simply do this if nothing else! I want to encourage you to be on the “do what you can plan.”
A little of God’s Word is better than none at all! I’m going to sign off and be “PRESENT with my PRESENTS!” Thanking God for these most precious gifts! Praying you will do the same!
