TOPIC: CHILDREN ARE GIFT FROM THE LORD
Memory verse:-"When the Lord saw that Leah was not loved, he opened her womb, but Rachel was
barren. Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben, for she
said, "It is because the Lord has seen my misery. Surely my husband will love me now.”
She conceived again, and when she gave birth to a son she said, "Because the Lord
heard that I am not loved, he gave me this one too.” So she named him Simeon.
Again she conceived, and when she gave birth to a son she said, "Now at last my
husband will become attached to me, because I have borne him three sons.” So he was
named Levi. She conceived again, and when she gave birth to a son she said, "This time
I will praise the Lord.” So she named him Judah. Then she stopped having children”.
Children are not rewards of sex or one’s effort but gifts from the Most High God. It is God who opens the womb and who can also close it, He gives children to whom He is
pleased. Most a time people mistakenly think that it is by a person’s strength that Children are born and for that reason they worry wives, husbands or in-laws who are
barren or cannot produce Children. They ought not to be blamed or troubled because it is only God who can give Children. The same God loves to see you, a married man
or woman, with children. He has not made you a barren, no! Have faith that you time to produce is now if you are need of a child.
Prayer:-pray for all barren women and pray for Children that they will fear God
What to meditate on:
Are children really gifts then why do they become burdens at times?
