June 12 Daily Devotional and Reflection
Psalm 127:3 is a reminder that our children are a gift from the Lord. They are a source of great joy, but they also come with a great responsibility. As parents, we must do everything we can to nurture and protect them. This means creating a safe and loving home environment, providing them with food and shelter, and teaching them right from wrong. It also means instilling in them a love for God and a desire to follow His will for their lives. Psalm 127:3 reminds us that our children are not our own – they belong to the Lord. As such, we must care for them as He would want us to. Only then can we hope to see them grow into healthy, happy adults who love and serve the Lord with all their heart.
