LOOKING AFTER OUR HERITAGE

" Behold, inheritance of the Lord are sons; the fruit of the womb a thing of esteem. As arrows in hand of the brave, so are the children in the youth. Blessed is the man who filled his quiver with them; not be ashamed when we speak with the enemy at the gate"(Psalm 127:3-5)


Parenting is one of the most beautiful experiences. There are no words to explain what a new parent feels when for the first time fixed his gaze into the eyes of her newborn son. It's indescribable to see these small human beings sprout and flower buds begin to grow, to learn and to develop their full potential. And what of that sublime moment when her first words are: dad, MOM?

We have to recognize that parenting is a privilege given by God, a good and merciful God, entrusted to us by the beautiful responsibility of educating them, guide them, and accompany them step by step, so that they grow not only in stature, but in wisdom and grace before God and society, until they become men and women of good to be lights that glow in a world that is in darkness.

But this work not be able comply with it ever, unless we fully understand the meaning of children: are a gift of God for our lives, the legacy he has left us so let's take it with tenacity and patience, not to lose it, not to waste it, but on the contrary, to make it grow and multiply.

God has given us in his word instructions for not failing and his promise to be with us, if we obey him. We can failure or mistake in any task we take on this earth, but we have no right to failure with our children, because it is our work that will endure even after our death.

It is never late to start! And remember... take care of them and educate them properly requires the best of ourselves: time, effort, resources, but the most important thing is love.

"Thank you father God by the joy of being in your presence, by our family, wife (or), friends and especially our daughters (or) what a wonderful privilege that you have given us. Thank you for the gift of your presence in our lives my God, which assures us the success as a father or mother. Today we pay our lives to you so that you would teach us to be so special and loving father as you are. Show us the way and lead us with your holy spirit. Happy will be that we fear the Lord and follow him in his ways, eat of the fruit of our work, we will be happy and all will be us well. Our wife shall be as a vine fruitful at the heart of our home; our children, as young shoots of olive trees around your table. So is the man who fears the Lord blessed! That the Lord bless you from Zion all the days of your life: you contemplate the peace of Jerusalem and you see your children's children! Our children are the most precious gift that you Father God gave us, we recognize that parenting is a privilege given by you, a good and merciful God, who entrusted to us by the beautiful responsibility of educating them, guide them, and accompany them step by step, in such a way to not only grow in stature, but in wisdom and grace before God and society We will give you the lives of our children and bless them in the name of Jesus, Amen"
