Building a Home

Psalm 127:3-5

Children are not a liability not a burden but a blessing from the Lord.
In our modern society, we seldom see children as heavenly gifts. We tend to be more planned to have them and more in control when it comes to their upbringing. We fall into two extremes when it comes to parenting, we either over-manage and get an unhealthy attachment with our children, or ignore them all together to the excuse of independence and ‘self-sufficient.’

God on the other side tells us that unless our children have Him, they and we have nothing.

To build a house with bricks and mortar might be possible for man, but to build a harmonious home where all members of the family dwell in joy and strength is a gift from the Lord.


Children are a gift from the Lord, we, the parents have them for a certain amount of time to appreciate, care, love and prepare them for the future. We can not do that right without the help of the Lord.

Dear Lord help me to see my children as your gifts to me and rely on you for their upbringing.

( See Matthew 18:10, Proverbs 13:22, Deuteronomy 6:6-7, Mark 10:13-16)
