Our Children Are God’s Children



Our children are God’s children.  They are on ‘loan’ to us.  What a concept huh?  I was sitting the other day by myself thinking of how I don’t always treat my children the best. I take out my anxiety on them with yelling, screaming and threatening.  I want to change these qualities about me but struggle so much.  I pray all the time on it and consistently find myself saying sorry not only to God but also my children for the way I act.

So it just came to me on this day.  They aren’t MY children…  They are God’s children.  He gave them to me to look after while they are here on earth.  I never REALLY thought of that way.  It’s a crazy concept but guess what?  It’s true.  We as parents are blessed to have our children.  We are blessed with their whole package including their good qualities, their flaws, their quirks and all.  We have a big responsibility if you think of that way.
