God has always promised blessing for our obedience to Him and He never breaks a promise. Being obedient isn’t easy. Oh, I know it’s not easy. God knows that it’s not easy which is why He says that we will be rewarded so much for just obeying His laws.
If you read all of Psalms 128 you see how, when blessings and prosperity are talked about, it’s always in reference to family. What better blessing could you possibly get than family. I know that through my life, the best gift I have EVER gotten were my husband & children. I couldn’t even begin to think about a blessing greater than them.
When everything disappears, all that will remain is your family and God.
God could offer us ANYTHING for our obedience. He could give us money, jewels, power, riches beyond our belief, but instead, He gives us little people to take care of. Kind of sounds like a joke right?!?! The fact is…God is intrusting us with the most valuable thing He could ever give us…one of His children.
Makes your job as a parent seem a little more special now doesn’t it?
So, the next time you want to wish and hope for measurable blessings for your obedience to God, take a look at your kids and remember…you have your blessings already. You receive your gifts in the form of hugs and kisses.
There is no better gift God could give us other than that.
