Parental Gladness

Scripture

“The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; he who fathers a wise son will be glad in him. Let your father and mother be glad; let her who bore you rejoice.”  ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭23:24-25‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Observation

A righteous and wise child will bring rejoicing and gladness to his/her parents. 

Application

Nothing brings more joy to a Christian parent than a child who is committed to the ways of God. When a child demonstrates wise and righteous living then his/her parents rejoice in their faithfulness to God’s principles. Lord may you guide our children in the path you have set before them so that they may bring you joy and glorify your name. 

Prayer

Lord I pray that I will be a child that will honor and glorify your name as I live life with wisdom and righteousness.
