Every child has the potential to become someone extraordinary. This will involve deliberate caring, wholistic formation and encouragement to make one’s dreams a reality. Given the right environment, the child can look forward to a bright future. However, every child should also be exposed to our God and formed in His ways. We see the Lord welcoming and blessing children (Mt. 19:13-15). It is the right of every child and duty of every parent to instil faith and hope in our loving God. Lord Jesus, bless our children. Help us to responsibly form them in Your ways, so that they may grow in grace and favour with You. Amen.
