With You

Recently, I read this verse and it captured my attention.

"Then Esau looked up and saw the women and children. “Who are these WITH YOU?” he asked. Jacob answered, “They are the CHILDREN God has graciously given your servant.” Genesis 33:5

This verse is a reminder that children are a gift from God. They are people that God has placed "with you."

Psalm 127:3 reminds us of this as well.

"Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from Him."

We have a responsibility to invest in and disciple the children God has placed with us.

The amount of time you have children with you is brief. The days definitely feel long at times. But the years are so short. They fly by so quickly. Ask anyone who has raised kids and they will confirm this.

This should cause us to look down the road of life and develop a clear pathway that we want to walk with our children. Here are some questions you can use to develop a pathway for the children who are with you.

Here's an example:

1. What do you want the children who are with you to believe about God?

2. What kind of character do you want to be instilled in the children who are with you?

3. What do you want the children who are with you to know about the Bible?
