Children are a gift from God; they are not our personal property. Eventually, our children marry and have children of their own. Children become parents who raise children. Therefore, how you interact with your children today will affect then and future generations. There’s a lot riding on your parenting skills.

Like everything else in life, children are God’s property, entrusted to us to raise and train. They are resources that are to be invested in for God’s purposes. It’s not our job to raise doctors, dentists, schoolteachers, homemakers, mechanics, entertainers, and so forth. It is our job to raise children who give their lives to God and commit their lives in service to Him. Then God will guide them into the professions for which He has created them.
– Leaving A Legacy – Billy Graham
