Writing in his book, A Work of Heart, Dr. Reggie McNeal, director of the leadership development for the Southern Baptist Convention says, "Common wisdom maintains that children are given to parents so parents can instruct them. The truth is, God gives children to parents to teach parents things like patience, discipline, self-sacrifice, responsibility, mercy, hope and forgiveness. Mostly though, children instruct us in the importance of and the fundamental need of our blessing."

(From a sermon by Gene Edwards, "In Search of the Blessing")
