The birth of a new baby brings joy and excitement. They are so precious and sweet, absolutely perfect! But, believe it or not, on the inside everyone is born with a sin nature. Thus, parents need to provide not only physical food for their new baby, but also spiritual food. Both are essential to raise healthy, godly children. Physical food is essential but spiritual food is valuable because it prepares one for an eternal life in heaven.
What a precious spiritual seed is planted in a baby’s heart every time they hear their mother or father sings “Jesus Loves Me.” Begin planting spiritual seeds at birth––regularly pray, sing and read Bible stories to your children. What a spiritual blessing.
