MFM Daily Devotional 3 July 2024 MESSAGE

Children are God’s own heritage, his sole property and belonging. Parents are merely stewards, working hand in hand with God to bring up his heritage according to his desire and purpose for them. Every godly parent should be in partnership with the Holy Spirit to succeed in the ministry of parenting according to divinely laid down principles.

God desires that our sons may be like strong plants in their youth. Consequently, they grow into strong and godly men as they continue in the way of the Lord. This prepares them to become godly men, fathers, and husbands who will build godly homes and continue in like manner to build God’s kingdom on earth.

The same thing refers to our daughters who are expected to become like pillars and not caterpillars. Not mere pillars, but such that is fashioned after the similitude of the palace, well rounded, sculptured, and polished, displaying godly beauty in their lives. This implies that parents should bring up their children in the way of the Lord such that when they grow up, they will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6).

Parents and parents-to-be, take note! You have a divine responsibility to perform over the children that God has committed to your hands, whether they are biological or spiritual children. How are you tending God’s plants? Do you nurture your children, feed and care for them to ensure that they grow according to divine purpose? Your nurturing calls for teaching them the word of God, good morals, how to live righteously in this evil world, how to relate amicably and maintain healthy and godly living.

Teach your children godly values to make them outstanding and exemplary in life. Teach them about integrity, diligence and healthy financial management, so that they don’t mismanage their resources as they grow up, but will know how to honour God with their lives and possessions. Your daughters should be rightly moulded to become candidates for godly homes as wives and mothers in future.

Jesus, as a child, experienced a physical, mental and spiritual growth (Luke 2:52). The same is true of Samuel, Esther and the daughters of Philip. We can have more of them in our homes by the help of the Holy Spirit, bringing them up to grow in like manner and having favour with God and man.
