Love Your Children As God Loves You

“All your children shall be taught by the Lord and great shall be peace of your children.” Isaiah 54:13

Our children need our love. To nurture and love them is such a privilege God has given us.

Last night, my nephew and his wife had a baby girl. My sister sent me a picture of my newest grand-niece.
She makes my sixth grand-niece. I also have six grand nephews.

She was only a few minutes old. When I saw her picture, I thought how wonderful babies are. Only God could give such a beautiful gift of pure love. 

How could you not love a baby? I thought back to my own mother and family when I was little, and how much love they gave me. Growing up in a house where you are loved and feel loved is one of the greatest blessings you can have. And if you are fortunate enough that they teach you about God and His love then you are double blessed.

Our job is to raise them to love, to know right from wrong, be respectful, and then the solid base of them knowing our Lord and Savior gives them everything they need in life to move forward in growing so they will be a blessing to others and have the life they were created for.

Darkness and Light!


"Therefore do not be partners with them. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord." Ephesians 5:7-10

Tim Kight, said, "The contrast in this passage is between light and darkness. Light in scripture refers to truth and righteousness. Darkness refers to falsehood and evil. To live as children of light means to be directed by what is good and right and true."

It seems today, people are telling us "Things we know to be bad are good, and things we know to be good are bad."

Maybe before we believe what we are being told, we would be smart to read God's word and confirm what He says is good and what He says is bad before we go off following those who may not be following Christ. 

This reminds me of the serpent in the Garden of Eden, telling Adam and Eve what was bad was good and what was good was bad.

We can not allow others to put us down into their rabbit holes.

"Lord, give us discernment in what we hear from others; courage to stand with you, and protection from being led astray."Susan Reichert

Like A Lion Is The Word


"For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." Hebrews 4:12

God's word is alive and it is active. To know His will, know His words in scripture. And then pray those words. What ever is going on in your life, find the scripture that relates to that and speak God's word to the situation.
