Seeing Your Children Through God’s Eyes
By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king's edict -Hebrews 11:23, NASB
Children need people to believe in them.
Here is the greatest challenge any parent can face. It is to exercise the gift of faith with his or her child.
That little boy or girl is no ordinary child and it takes a mother or father to know it and act upon it. It takes courage to follow through with the commitment necessary to protect, nurture, guide, and admire a child from infancy to adulthood..
Spiritual parents can have the same calling: to come alongside a young person or a new believer and be the first person in that kid’s life to really believe in her, the first older friend to say to him, “You can do it and I will be right here beside you as you make the first efforts.”
Honor your father and mother because of the vision that they have had for your life.
Honor them by believing in another child.
Be a mentor. More specifically, be a disciple-maker. Step up to the plate with courage and faith and become vulnerable enough to invest your time, energy, and wisdom in an extraordinary child.
It may just be your faith and courage that helps to lift him or her from ordinariness to greatness.
