Poem: "Give this Child"

Do you have a child and sometimes wonder what he/ she needs?
I found this poem and I liked it...

GIVE THIS CHILD WHAT SHE NEEDS
Give this child what she needs
Love
Give this child what she needs
Shelter
Give this child what she needs
Prayers
Give this child what she needs
Some food and water
Give this child what she needs
Good parents
Give this child what she needs
Good manners
Give this child what she needs
A smoke free home
Give this child what she needs
Peace and happiness
Give this child what she needs
To know God
Give this child what she needs
Your guidance
Give this child what she needs
Clothes
Give this child what she needs
Your support
Give this child what she needs
Some family time
Give this child what she needs
A nice bath every day
Give this child what she needs
Some discipline
Give this child what she needs
A warm bed to sleep on 

I find this to be true-- that a child really does need all those things-- clothes, a bath, bed, a smoke-free home, but also love, discipline, support, family time, helping them know God and more. I hope I am giving my children these things with the help of God!


Psalm 113:9
He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the Lord.


Psalm 127:3-4
Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.


Proverbs 13:24
Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.
