These days we are very conscious of “heart health.” Without going into details about all of the things our heart does to keep us alive, we know our heart is the most vital organ in our body. God tells us throughout the bible, the value of our heart to Him. For we are told in Romans 10:10, “For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.”
Another heart issue in the bible is King David’s heart. God’s servant King David was no saint, but we are told that David had a heart like God’s heart. David’s heart provided the pathway for the birth of Jesus Christ, our Saviour!
So, the heart is also very important to your Christian daily walk and your child’s life too!
You see, right now you have the ability to help your child mold their heart; a heart which can be exactly like God’s heart. And you will do this with your actions and your words toward the child and toward others. I know, firsthand, the stress of this world and some days can seem impossible. But I know the saving Grace of Jesus Christ and falling on His feet asking for kind words and the removal of my frustration.
Every day try to be heart conscious not only with your heart, but with your child/children’s heart! Raise a child with a heart like King David’s heart and be amazed at what they will accomplish in their life for Jesus Christ.
