|Sons are a heritage from the LORD, |
children a reward from him.
|Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.|
|Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, |
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
|Psalm 127:3 |
Psalm 127:3 tells us that "children are a heritage," meaning they belong to God. He has a destiny and purpose for each of them (Rom. 8:28). Therefore, the privilege of motherhood rests not just in the bearing of children. The true privilege comes from being entrusted with the faithful stewardship of the life-gifts of God, who will one day act as His agents, both now and through eternity (Rev. 5:10; 22:5).
