A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.
A gift is a valuable asset giving to someone voluntarily without charge. It can be material and immaterial. Many atimes parents thought when they bought things like ice creams, clothes,shoes, watches, shirts, phones etc that they have given gifts to their children but it's more than that.
Below are important gifts parents give to their children without them knowing:
1. Good baby name
The first gift we give to our children without knowing is a gift of good baby name. Name is a declaration of the destiny of your child. The name a child is called always comes to be in line with his or her destiny because it what he or she is answering every day of his or her life. When Jesus was to be born he's names was declared to his parents by angel so that they don't make mistake with his names.
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Again when King Solomon was to be born his name was given to his father King David.
1 Chronicles 22:9
Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days.
Again when John the Baptist was to be born to his father his name was also given to him.
But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
When you give name to your child aim at something special as Pst. Solomon Chelon always says. Give names that means something great. Names like Elena, shinning lights, Roy meaning King, Regina meaning Queen, Flourish meaning to excel, Eugene or Eugenia meaning well born, Dora meaning gift, Laura meaning laurels are good examples to give your children just to mention but few. It goes along way in reshaping and confirming destinies of the life of your children.
2. Gift of proper upbringing or training
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Proper upbringing and training of children is another gift we give to our children without knowing. Do not deprived them of it. Depriving them of it is not love but carelessness and sucidal for their progress and success in life.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
Do not spare the rod if not you will spoiled the future of the child. Foolishness is abound in heart of children and it's by proper upbringing training and discpline that we can drive foolishness out of their lives.
3. Gift of Good Education
With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.
It's not enough to gift your children, good names, proper upbringing and training but without proper education.
Education is power. The best legacies to give your children is education. When you educate a child you educate a generation. And if you do not educate a child you disarmed a generation. Education is light. Education is one of the best gift to give your children don't deprive them of it. Give your wards best and quality education as it's necessary for their growth, maturity, progress and success in life. Children are arrows through which you fight and overcome your enemies (Psalm 127: 4-5). Do not disarm them through lack or improper education.
4. Gift of Love
You can't love your baby or child if you do not give him or her proper upbringing and training, education and good name. Love encompasses all of these things. Love is a gift as not all parents do that, some only give birth and allow the children to cater for themselves.
The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
When you love your children you will give them so many good things.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
When you love your children you will sacrifice so many things for their good as God did for the world.
5. Gift of good home and family
Gift of good home is another gift we give to your children without knowing. Good homes are homes where love peace, oneness, unity and understanding abound. Lacking of good homes and families in our societies today either due to governments irresponsibities is why we are experiencing perrenial social vises such as raping,arm roberry, kidnapping,duggery, hired assins just to mention but few couple with failures of marriages due to single parenting. The love, peace,unity, oneness and understanding of the homes and families can be achieve through wisdom of the parents.
Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:
Through wisdom is any marriage is built and through understanding it is sustained. And it's the responsibilities of the parents to give children such acceptable, serene homes. They is a popular saying that when two elephants fight the grass that suffer. A gift of good family or home is good for the future of the destinies of the children as the children always look up at the parents as examples and they are one that suffers due to improper upbringing, training, education as a result of the failed marriages and relationships.
6. Gift of praying for them
1 Kings 17:21
And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, I pray thee, let this child's soul come into him again.
1 Samuel 1:27
For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him:
It's our responsibility to pray for our children for them to overcome temptations and fulfill their destinies in life. It's a gift because so many parents give their children good names, educate them, love them,built good houses and homes for them but don't pray for them. Pray for your children to excel and fulfill their destinies. Devil always look forward to frustrate the destinies of children.
