YOU NEVER KNOW ABOUT YOUR KIDS

YOU NEVER KNOW ABOUT YOUR KIDS


The children of Amram were Aaron, Moses, and Miriam. (1 Chronicles 6:3)

What will your children become? What will they do? What will they accomplish? One thing is for sure: you never know.

AMRAM’S OWN

We don’t really know anything about Amram in the Scripture except that he was the father of three children who were mightily used in the Scripture. One was headed to be killed as a baby, but his mother intervened, putting him in the bulrushes to be rescued by Pharoah’s daughter. Who knew he would deliver an entire nation? Record God’s laws for all of time? Become one of the greatest leaders of human history?

His brother, Aaron, had quite an impact in his own right, as did their sister, Miriam.

GETTING READY

One thing is for sure: if we knew what God had in His mind for our kids, we would probably be more intentional. Disciple them more carefully. Pray for them unceasingly. Equip them at greater levels.

We get a few years to invest in our kids. They are gifts from the Lord and our most important stewardship. We should give every ounce of energy possible to pour wisdom and life into their hearts and minds. We should help them know the Scripture and prayer. And, most importantly, we should lead them to Christ, for they will be able to do all things through Him.

Look at your child today, not as an intrusion into your busy life, but a great opportunity to raise a world-changer.

Father, thank You for the gift of my children. Give me the wisdom to shepherd them well. Help me to be about the main things in life, so they will see the value of a life wholly surrendered to You. Protect them from evil and help them grow to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

THE END RESULT FOR “RELIGIOUS BUT FOOLISH” MEN AND WOMEN

February 14, 2024

The church is often, sadly, a microcosm of the world. Many churches contain both wise and foolish men and women. Jesus was the one who declared that there would be both “wheat and tares” even in the church, i.e., people who were genuine believers and those who professed to be believers but were not.
