Parenting is a Divine Call, Part 4

Through out the scriptures God discuses the importance of today’s parents influencing tomorrow’s parents. Psalm 78 :5-7 states “He established a degree in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach to their children; that the generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and rise up and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God.” God calls us to invest in our children’s tomorrow. The moment we say invest the thought that first comes to our mind is stocks, bonds and deposits. But there is another kind of investment that is even more important. Are we speaking to our children about what God has done in our lives, what His plans are for their future. Even from our womb itself God sets us apart. When world renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright was still in his mother’s womb, she would pace in front of large elegant pictures of architecture and describe them to her unborn child. Frank grew up to become one of the world’s most renowned architect. His mother had invested in him even before he could be born. You are called to do the same.
