Children are a gift from God, the ultimate expression of His love. Sons in particular represent the continuation of a family line and inheritance. Throughout scripture, we see that sons are considered blessings.
God promised Abraham that his descendants would outnumber the stars in the sky, and gave him the son he had waited so long for – Isaac. Later, we see Jacob’s 12 sons become the 12 tribes of Israel. Even Jesus’ earthly father Joseph graciously took Mary as his wife and adopted Christ as his own son, raising him to be a carpenter.
Having children to carry on a legacy is seen as a joy and privilege. The Bible reminds us that sons are like arrows in a man’s hands. Just as arrows can be aimed and shot toward a target, good fathers guide their sons wisely to walk in the ways of righteousness. Sons who follow God are a credit to their families. Even in old age, they will be there to honor and provide for parents who invested in them.
Of course, raising children also requires sacrifice and patience. But the effort is always worth it. Sons shape the future, and their character is a reflection of those who raised them. Though today’s society faces many corrupt influences, a godly home can produce sons who live lives of integrity. May we raise up the next generation to walk in truth, until Christ himself returns.
Dear friends, now let’s see the Bible scriptures below that talk about “Sons Are A Blessing From The Lord”.
“Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord : and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate”
“And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee”
“Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep”
“He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord”
“The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children”
“Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord”
“The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him”
“Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion”
“Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence”
“And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them”
“For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call”
1 Corinthians 7:14
“For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy”
“Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged”
“And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me”
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning”
2 Peter 1:3-4
“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust”
“He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son”
