A child is born. What a great joy, happiness and responsibility! The Almighty wove this child in the womb! The Almighty has invested great and wonderful gifts in this human being! And at birth, a miracle happened – the whole world saw this living creature, which will learn to speak, walk, create and will change the world! Human being is the image and likeness of God and in him is a powerful force to create the world around him!
God is not indifferent to the fate of every person and therefore in His Word He told us how to behave and how live a long and a happy life!
The first is a very important instruction for parents and there is great wisdom in this.
“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4 (ESV)
If, having given birth to a child, the parent does not bother to raise him in the instructions of the Lord, then the future of this child will be sad and very difficult! Only in love and in God’s Word is it possible to create a harmonious personality. And the Almighty expects from parents that they will be patient and attentive to the child and raise him in love!
And the Almighty has a task for children, and if you complete it, you will achieve success!
“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “That it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”
So it turns out that if you grow up as an obedient child, then later you yourself will be a good and loving parent!
God’s guidance is the basis of a long and joyful life!
Peace and joy in the Lord to everyone!
Shalom! Baruch Hashem!
