When you get to hold a newborn baby, something beautiful flourishes within you. The sweet noises, the tiny hand that wraps around your finger, and the delight in your heart that wells up within you, means there is something good in this world. The love and the passion of the parents, and the siblings bind them together to become a family forever. Who is this new life? What are they bringing into this world that we can’t live without? For now, it’s just love, but soon we will be able to see their traits blossom, and God’s purpose for them will be exposed for all to see. So unselfish is the love of a mother and father who chooses life, which shouldn’t be a choice at all. God planted a seed, and he expects for it to live and grow, that is his plan, and they have a purpose. Will this new child have a heart for Jesus? He surely will! If you begin to teach your children to trust the Lord, as if there is no other way, they may run off and sow a few oats, but they will return to their first love, the one who loves them the most, Jesus. Teach your children and grandchildren about our amazing Creator, and tell them of the sacrifice that he made, and of the love he has for us. One day they too will commit their life to him, and follow him wherever he leads.
"Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
