CHILDREN.

"Behold, God's inheritance are children, a thing of esteem the fruit of the womb.
Psalm 127: 3.
"And you parents, provoke not your children to wrath, but bring them up in the discipline and admonition of the Lord." Ephesians 6: 4.
"And all your children will be taught by God, and the peace of your children will multiply." Isaiah 54:13.

What value do your children have? Have you realized how much they are worth? What does having children mean to you? God Himself has given them to us as an inheritance.

Only God can give us children. And he does not give them to us as a burden, as a punishment, but as a favor as a blessing. Therefore, we need to receive them in order to love and educate them because they are a gift from God and he himself will supply everything they need.

"And you parents, provoke not your children to wrath, but bring them up in the discipline and admonition of the Lord." Ephesians 6: 4.

Discipline to correct improper actions, discipline in sleeping, eating, doing.
Scholars of human development have said that we make up half of a child's personality in the first 5 years of life, and then the task of training will be easier.

Thomas Manton expressed:

There are effects of receiving children as the inheritance that comes from God:
Parents will trust the Lord for their provision and safety.
They will discipline them in the fear of the Lord.
They will often consult God in relation to them.
They will hand them over to God without complaint if He decides to take them away.

If these points are met, then:

They will become the joy of parents.
They will be the permanent record of the wisdom of their parents.
They will be the support and relief of the work or solace in the old age of their parents.
They will be the transmitters of the virtues of their parents to another generation.
