The Importance Of Children
By Mark Flippo
Psalm 127: 3-4 (NIV)
Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.
Psalm 8:2 (NIV)
Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
1 Peter 2:2-3 (NIV)
Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
Children are very important because who will test your sanity more? What would you do without cleaning up one major mess after another? You always wanted to be a referee right? Of course where would any good parent be without an empty wallet? Seriously you really did not want to keep that special thing from your childhood? Where would you be without the little darlings interrupting your private time? The little dears mouthing off to you when they become horrible people in their teen years.
Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde have nothing on them! Who can break your heart any more than your kids can? For those times that can get to be rare as they grow up, you still Love them. Being a parent does not make any good sense. But what can you do when they are little they are so huggable, except when they are crying. In spite of all of the struggles most parents will say it was worth all the battles. Because you become the grandparent and you get to give that little adorable bundle of extremes back to your children and laugh and laugh and laugh!!
