“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” Psalm 127:3Text — Psalm 127: 3- 5
The word ‘heritage’ means inheritance or possession. As a child, you are privileged to be called God’s heritage, meaning that you belong to God and He owns your entire life and existence. It is true that your biological parents gave birth to you, but God owns you ultimately. God is your Creator, and we are told in Psalm 139:14 “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” For a child that has given his life to Jesus, God has double ownership of his life.
Children are supposed to be holy and godly, so as to be a reward to their parents. You are to live a godly life that makes you a channel of blessings to your parents. Your parents should always praise God for giving you to them. Honour your biological parents, the ministers of God that are teaching you the word of God, your school teachers and elders in the society. Avoid actions that can bring sorrow and shame to your parents. Support them to serve God acceptably. If your parents are not believers, pray for their salvation. Be sensitive to their feelings and be supportive to them. Always pray for them so that they can play their God-given roles to you. When your parents are happy with you, God will be happy and bless you.
