Children are so precious to God. What a blessing to have children and what an awesome responsibility. I’m still learning of God’s Sovereignty…and just what that means.

What do you have to say for yourself? Taken from the commentary in my NIV: These verses aren’t talking about disliking a disagreeable Christian brother or sister.
