The time we spend with children, nurturing and guiding them, holds immeasurable value, far surpassing any material gifts we can provide. These moments forge deep bonds and cherished memories, laying a solid foundation for their lives. This nurturing presence is essential in their emotional and spiritual development, teaching them about love, empathy, fun and the joys of simple companionship.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (AMP), says, "And these words, which I am commanding you today, shall be [written] on your heart and mind. You shall teach them diligently to your children [impressing God’s precepts on their minds and penetrating their hearts with His truths]..."
As children grow, they will reflect on the time spent together, valuing the guidance, love, and attention they received more than anything else. It's in these moments that we truly impart something lasting and meaningful, creating a legacy of conveyed wisdom that long endures and shapes their lives.
Always give your attention to your children, it’s precious.
Lord, help me to make the time to invest in my wider family. Amen.
