Child Support From God’s Perspective

Money is a very small part of “child support.” Let’s look at this from God’s perspective. When the disciples removed the children who were brought to Christ for His blessing, Jesus rebuked His own disciples saying, “Let the little children come to me…for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:13-15, NIV). God Himself stopped everything and everyone in effort to touch and bless children. Today, we have no idea how important our children are! Children in our families and communities are being neglected and we’ve learned to live with it. Neglected children and teens grow into the most impoverished, under-skilled and troubled citizens in our societies. All the while, currently each of us has many opportunities to encourage, guide and support a child. Let’s recall that God stopped everything to help a child. Let’s welcome our opportunities to do the same! There are enormous blessings for our CHILD SUPPORT.
