24 The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice,
And he who sires a wise son will be glad in him.
25 Let your father and your mother be glad,
And let her rejoice who gave birth to you. Proverbs 23:24-25
There is a great honor that exist in the heart of a parent who has raised a child committed to the Lord. There have been different parents throughout the biblical account who have dedicated their children to the Lord. Two of them are Samuel and John the Baptist.
Both were mighty prophets of the Lord and both brought great joy and honor to their parents. A child who lives a life committed to the Lord not only honors their parents who live upon the earth, but bring great honor and joy to their Father in Heaven.
When our lives align with God and His purposes our lives are a living witness of the power and the grace of God. We live in a wicked generation that continues to grow in wickedness by the day. Those committed unto the Lord will shine as a bright light at this time in history. Even though at times it may seem we are the only one who are living for the Lord and His ways, we are never alone. In all that we do the Lord walks with us and prepares and designs our every step. The Holy Spirit leads and guides us in all things. May our lives be a living sacrifice unto the Lord on a daily basis in all things.
