“The father of godly children has cause for joy. What a pleasure to have children who are wise.” — Proverbs 23:24 (NLT)

Our children are often the source of our greatest joys, and in difficult circumstances they can cause our deepest sorrows, when things go wrong in their lives or they suffer difficulties or have health challenges or worse. 

The best way of ensuring that our children bring us joy and pleasure is by teaching them Godly ways and encouraging them to follow Christ. And whether they respond by declaring their faith in God and that they are Christians, we trust that the Holy Spirit will lead them and draw them into the Kingdom of God.

Let us pray for our families and our children, may they be blessed, and may they know the love of God through our leading.
