|The father of a righteous man has great joy;|
he who has a wise son delights in him.
|The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.|
Joy comes to parents whose children do well in school, make wise choices, and have families of their own. However, the greatest joy to a parent who believes is when their child loves the Lord deeply.
Parents, whether your children are small, growing, or grown, your role as Mom and Dad always evolves. Yet your role of showing them Christ remains the same. Encourage your children and laugh with them! Embrace each day as an opportunity to share Christ with your children, sharing the hope that is within you.
