Don't COMPARE Your Child to Others!

God is there for His children in every moment of every day. He will never turn away from you or your children, and will remain present with us always. What crisis are you facing today regarding your children? What need is consuming you? Share your heart with Jehovah-Shammah. He is there for you and wants to hear your concerns, fears, and anxieties.

Training children to love and to serve the Lord, to be compassionate toward others, and to have consistent walks of faith is the most noble and important work any parent can do. Therefore, we should find great joy in the fact that the Lord has called us and entrusted us to be parents!

Never lose sight of the fact that you are training your child not only to take a role in God’s kingdom on this earth, but also to assume a place and an inheritance in heaven.

Many parents wonder what the most important lesson is that they can teach their children. The answer is simple. Nothing can take the place of teaching your child about the forgiveness and love of God. Sharing about the saving grace of Jesus Christ is the most important thing you will ever do.

Too often, mothers and fathers become weary in the process and say, “I am raising children” or “I am supporting a family.” However, we need to view our parental roles as being a privilege. We are training heirs to the kingdom of God; children who will make a difference in this world for God, children who will love others in Christ and lead others to salvation, children who will live together with you in eternity, children who will know the fullness of God’s blessings, guidance, and favor!

As you pursue the challenge of being a godly parent, you can be assured that God is on your team. He will provide the wisdom you need for every situation. He also will protect you and bless you as you walk in His ways and bring glory to His name.

Prayer: Father,
I realize that as a parent I have a tremendous task. I know I cannot do it on my own. I need Your wisdom to guide me each day. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.
