How can one even describe the love that a parent has for their child? You can’t! The love for a child is one of the greatest loves you can experience in this life. I grew up with two amazing parents who loved and cared for my brother and I very much. They not only made sure that we had everything we needed or wanted, but were always there to talk or just listen if needed. My mom was diligent about taking us to church every time the doors were open, and showing us the love and grace of God every day. Through this love we came to know God’s love for ourselves! It taught me to eventually show this love to my own children. Besides my salvation, Camilla, Tyde and Solomon are the greatest gifts God could have given me. Even though life as a parent isn’t perfect and sometimes hard, I wouldn’t change any of it for a second.
I want to tell you thank you for investing in your child’s future and eternity. By bringing them to church you are not only showing your love, but God’s love through you. Even when times are hard and life is draining, God loves you, and your children love you. God loves us as His children, far greater than we could ever love our own children!
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!
