(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 18:6
(6) But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
IT IS TIME!
Grace be unto you! A few days ago, I happened to visit a newborn baby girl at a nearby hospital nursery; as I stood by her crib, perceived how she was snuggled up with warmful blankets into what seemed like a very comfortable posture inside her crib; thoughtfully, I gave praises to God for his miraculous works within the children of men; though, as innocent as this baby was, who on earth can be as innocent as I saw her on that day, except he/she can get back into the womb and be physically born again, cf. John 3:3; we all know that this cannot be possible in an actual sense, however, spiritually, all things are possible with Jesus, through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; therefore, if we are not yet born again either by the water baptism or by the Holy Ghost fire; it is time, see to it!
The Psalmist wrote; Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. cf. Psalm 127:3; therefore, when it comes to raising up children, let us train them along with the biblical principles, it is important to feed them with the kingdom words from their youthful years, that later on during adulthood years, they will not depart from it. cf. Proverbs 22:6; though we give birth to children on earth, they are not really ours, we are caregivers, who will account for our works someday before the throne of grace; therefore, let us be mindful of how we train them, never forcefully or strenuously, verbally or physically, be abusive towards them, with tenderloving cares, patience, endurance, tolerance, self-controlling attitudes train them with godly wisdom, in the rightful ways, guide in righteousness; for, Jesus was particular about the little children, read Matthew 19:14; Mark 10:14; it is time, see to it!
Beloved, as parents, we juggle daily between parental control of children versus work schedules, house duties, and responsibilities; if there is anyone among us, in this category, I encouraged you to have patience, enjoy the process, it is worth your time on earth; the thing is, they don't stay the same forever, as we celebrate their birthdays, they are getting closer to the point of flying out into the world of their own, leaving behind their empty nests, a void that cannot be filled; therefore, no matter what they do, disapprove when wrongful, applause when rightful, with a positive outlook on every aspect, enjoy them as part of the blessings of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Continue to love one another! Jesus is coming back again soon! Thank you for reading! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!
WORD OF WISDOM:
(KJV.) Proverbs 15:11 Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?
