Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is His reward. Psalm 127:3
When a little baby is born into the world, his parents’ time is taken up mostly with his physical needs. He mostly needs to be kept warm and dry and fed. He is constantly needing their time in many little ways and his spiritual needs seem to be summed up in simply giving him affection, during this time when his physical needs seem to consume so much of their time.
There is a time, however, when the child grows, and the physical need diminishes somewhat and the spiritual need increases. Many parents seem to be stuck here in the physical need syndrome and many neglect the spiritual training of their children.
A Sobering Thought: Our nation will eventually become what our homes have been all along.
