Psalm 127:3-5 (NKJV) 3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. 5 Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.

Whole families traveled together from the out skirts of Jerusalem to praise and worship God. They made the pilgrimage to Jerusalem to give thanks to God. Making the trip together as an entire family probably made the trip more enjoyable for children are one of God’s gifts. Raising children in God’s way is so important. Parents must teach by example, showing their children how to honor and obey God. It makes it easier to raise children in the discipline and instruction of God. Godly children are a blessing from God. For when you become old you can depend on them to take care of you. And so, it is good to have many children who fear the Lord. Children who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ and have accepted Him as their Savior are a blessing from God. And that is the qualifier, children who have faith are a blessing from God. Otherwise they could be an enormous heartache instead of a blessing. So, do your best to raise your children in the way God wants them to go.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
