Some people use to say, children can be a blessings or a curse. The reality is that children are a blessings and a challenge.
The blessing is the joy they bring as infants, and the impact they have on parents maturation process. I’ve seen the worst of people clean up their act once they had a their first child.
Children usually don’t come with an easy button. From day one it is an extreme challenge. Any parent out there knows that, I can see y’all now say, “AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!”
Children are a blessing because if we develop them correctly, we will experience joy for years to come. If we don’t step up to the challenge, we will see them rot away with the environment. We have to inspect what we expect, so parents need to be involved.
Children aren’t a set it and forget type of deal. They are trying to be like their parents and everything else around that looks cool, flashy, and popular. Parents need to check things at the door with wisdom and authority. This builds trust.
Too often, especially in our modern day, children are having children. And don’t think for a minute you’re not a child even if you’re 29. It is more so what you have within your mind. Children are having children and they can only replicate in development, children. A lot of parents have nothing to offer their children. A pair of Jordans or haircut every week is not worth an ear of corn.
What do you give your children emotionally and mentally? What can they hold onto for time immemorial? Parents, and the extended family and community make the children.
Children are blessings and a challenge!
In the book of Psalm (yeah it’s in the Bible, yeah I read it from time to time)
At chapter 127 it says, “children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” Jesus made it plain to bring the children to Him. This is to say, children are vital, they are our greatest responsibility and investment. Psalm goes on to say, “Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them.”
Most people aren’t too happy today to have a lot of children because of the system of raising children has changed. NEVERTHELESS, don’t forget, they are challenging, but you as the parent must be up for the game!
