|Are You Ready to be a Parent?|
Comment: Despite certain hardships, children are a gift from God. There are very few things in life more amazing than a mother's for her children. There are also very few greater responsibilities than to be godly parents.
Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. (Ps 127:3, NASB)
S0, don't neglect the most important things:
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. (Prov 22:6, ESV)
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. (Eph 6:4, NRSV)
Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. (Dt 6:5-7)
