The ability to bear children or adopt children in marriage and raise a family is a blessing, privilege, and awesome responsibility. Unfortunately not all can do this due to the brokenness of our world and the mystery of God’s providence over our lives. But still family is a great blessing.
Psalm 127:3–5 (ESV) — 3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. 5 Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
The greatest blessing we share and experience with children is to see them become followers of Jesus Christ. That is our aim and goal in raising children. It is to see them become disciples of Jesus treasuring and loving Him as their Lord and Saviour.
