Latest Great Grandson
During my Bible readings this morning I came across these verses from the Psalms:
‘Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has a quiver of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.’
and Psalm 90:17
Let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us,
And establish the work of our hands for us;
Yes, establish the work of our hands.
There are two main themes here:
1) God is the Provider who determines rewards.
2) He is the One who gives significance and meaning to our lives.
My heritage has been children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, all of whom have given me happiness. Because they have been provided by the LORD, what they do with their lives has great significance and meaning.
