“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” (Psalm 127:3, ESV)
Before you know it, the little face that brought tears to your eyes in the delivery room can become – perish the thought – common. A common kid sitting in the back seat of your van as you whiz down the fast lane of life. Unless something changes, unless someone wakes you up, that common kid will become a common stranger. The things that we value the most are where we concentrate our use of time. Aren’t your children worth a little extra care?
Prayer: Lord, help me care for my child as you have cared for me.
