《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”” (Mat 19:14)
Meditation one: What is the most valuable legacy you, as a parent, can give to your children? Where are you going to bring your child to? The most certain and true manifestation of loving your children is to lead them to know God. Lead children to trust in God like their parents do, and share the joy of salvation, as well as live in the kingdom of eternal life. God’s Word is clear, “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” (Pro. 22: 6). Don’t wait until you think they are mature enough, and then care about their salvation. It will be too late.
Meditation two: Do you really care about your child’s soul being saved? God cares a lot about their value of existence. Jesus said, “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. . . In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish” (Mat 18: 10-14). When we bring our children to the church, we are accompanying them into the kingdom of God. On the day when you come to meet God, if He asks you, “Where is your child?” How do you answer to God?
Prayer: Thank God, He cares about families, and entrusts us with the responsibility of a “Christianized family.” Please strengthen my faith, and give me the wisdom and power from You, that I can be a good steward loyal to you. It is not easy to lead the whole family to the Lord, yet I believe when things are impossible with men; but with God all things are possible. Oh God! Help me learn to be like a child and trust in You only. I pray In Jesus’ name, Amen!
