Children: Assignment 9

Even more, but we’re close:

Proverbs 20:7

7The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him.

                Psalms 37:25-26

                25I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.  26They are always generous and lend freely; their children will be blessed.

                Psalms 112:2

                2His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.

Proverbs 31:28

28Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:

Joel 1:3

3Tell it to your children, and let your children tell it to their children, and their children to the next generation.

                Psalms 71:18

                18Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation

Common question: Why can’t we have all these blessings now?  Why are we suffering?

Our days here are getting shorter, our cries to God seem to go unanswered but He’s there.  He’s listening.  He’s giving us all what we need to make it through.  It’s never about what you feel though so don’t let your brain lie to you.  But your children need to hear the word of God and don’t ever be ashamed of it or hide it.  When all you have is a moment to say, “Jesus loves you.” and they take you away, God will let those words sink in.
