Happy children's Day 👩🏽🦲
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a real blessing.
The sons a man has when he is young are like arrows in a soldier's hand.
Happy is the man who has many such arrows.
He will never be defeated when he meets his enemies in the place of judgment.
The above verses is what children are no matter how they come(planned, by accident, or in the lab).
Children are the future of every generation, children are lovely to have, they have a heart that keeps no record of wrong they are humble, like Jesus told his disciples to be like the little children if they want the kingdom of God.
Children are what God say they are, except that we are leaving in a times that children are abused and exploited, when am talking about abuse am not limiting the scope to rape (sexual molestation) alone am also referring to the exposure of children to the society at a very early stage, this is usually through sending them out to hawk, this kind of exposure makes them see and hear things that their mind is not matured to handle, another form of abuse is predefining their lives and forcing them to follow the future you intend for them, there are alot to say about child abuse, from media exposure to strick disciplinary measures and so on, but I only intend to caution parents about just this those few.
Just like you have read above, that children are a gift, that means it is not your efforts that brought them to you, but God's grace, and when you are given a gift it is bad attitude not be appreciative or grateful to the giver, many parents are in the habit of comparing their children with that of others, your child mustn't be the best in his class, or the smartest, understand who they are and support them instead of putting them into depression with your high standards.
No matter how your child turn out to be thank God and always pray for them, that dullard might be the solution to the world tomorrow, check the story behinds Dr. Bencarson's story and you will understand what am saying.
Happy children's day to retired parents, serving parents and potential parents.
