Earthly Rewards

2016-03-14 18.14.58Children are a gift from the Lord;
    they are a reward from him. Psalm 127:3 (NLT)

As I welcomed my fourth grandchild, August Joseph Mahannah, into the world yesterday, I was reminded of this verse. It’s true that when we think about treasures or rewards from God, we most often think about what is waiting for us in heaven. It’s going to be amazing! But there is a reward that we can enjoy here on earth and that reward is our children. They are a GIFT from God–a REWARD from Him!! Spend some time right now thanking God for your gifts. Let them know how much you love them. Enjoy every minute God gives you with them.
