Don’t raise great kids, raise kids that become great adults
Gal 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only [use] not
liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
A son is missed 20a But when he was yet a great way off,
Gen 3:9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him,
Where [art] thou?
Gen 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he [was] not; for God
Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we
were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
A son is kissed 20b ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him
Jer 31:3 The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, [saying], Yea, I
have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with
lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall]
tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness,
or peril, or sword?
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor
principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to
separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
A son is blessed 22
1 John 4:19 “We love Him because He first loved us.
Phil 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his
riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Jas 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and
cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no

Ps 37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the
desires of thine heart.

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to
become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name
Rom 8: 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the
sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage
again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption,
whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth
witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with
Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also
glorified together. 18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this
present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory
which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of
the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
The father did everything for his son’s benefit.
The servants did what they did for the father
