Bible Babble

This past Sunday, one of our church minister’s sermonized that children are a gift from God. I couldn’t believe I heard that, because normally I never hear any part of the sermon. In fact, I wrote my last post during the sermon. Anyway, that part of the sermon about children puzzled me, but not because I doubted the Bible has some verse like that. It seems to have a verse about everything. For example, I was considering supporting Senator Kamala Harris as the Democratic candidate for President, but …

Timothy 2:11 “I permit no woman to teach or have authority over men; she is to keep silent.”

Oh well, there are plenty of male candidates, so no worries.

I did check the Bible to see if children are truly a gift from God. Sure enough …

Psalm 127:3 “Children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord.”

In the course of raising five children, I have often questioned if my kids are gifts, then where are the gift receipts?

Oh well, if those “gifts” don’t work out and you can’t find the gift receipts, there’s always this child-rearing/bashing tip …

Psalm 137:9 “May the Lord bless everyone who beats your children against the rocks!”

So I’ve got that going for me, which is nice.
