As Thanksgiving approaches, it is helpful to recall what God tells us through his Word about thanksgiving. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 tells us that it is the will of God for us to give thanks in all circumstances. We all have blessings to be thankful for regardless of the season. However, as parents, there is a blessing which for many comes second only to the gift of eternal life: our children. 

Psalms 127:3 tells us “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” When I loved my parents & siblings, I thought I knew what love was. When God blessed me with a wife, I felt as though I experienced a greater love. When my son was born, I felt as though I experienced an even greater love. I feel that the love I have for my son is as close as I will get to the kind of love God has for each of us. Imagine the love you have for your child(ren) and multiply that by 1 million. That will not even come close to the love that our Heavenly Father has for each and every one of us. The birth of a child brings about more love into the world. So children are not just a blessing to a family, they are a blessing to the world. 

How can we as parents show thanks to God for the blessing of our children? There are many way to show thanks to God. For example, Psalm 92:1 says, “It is good to give thanks to the LORD And to sing praises to Your name. Another way to show thanks to God is to be a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7). A third way to show thanks to God is to be holy. Leviticus 11:44 tells us to “be holy, for I am holy.” However, there is a way to show thanks to God that is unique to parents, grandparents, guardians, educators, mentors etc. Proverbs 22:6 tells us “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” The greatest thanks parents can show to God is to raise up holy Christian children that accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
