Todays meditation is from the book of proverbs.
“The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice, And he who begets a wise child will delight in him.”
When I read this verse I thought about how Father God looks at us. Are we like GOD????? The father who delights in righteousness is happy when He is able to reproduce after His own kind.
The Word Begets means :-
verb (used with object), be·got or ( Archaic ) be·gat; be·got·ten or be·got; be·get·ting.1.(especially of a male parent) to procreate or generate (offspring).2. to cause; produce as an effect: a belief that power begets power.
[ Walk in Love ] Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
Romans 8:16-18 (NKJV)
16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!”
In that day a man will look to his Maker, And his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel.
But when he sees his children, The work of My hands, in his midst, They will hallow My name, And hallow the Holy One of Jacob, And fear the God of Israel.
Thus says the LORD, The Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: “Ask Me of things to come concerning My sons; And concerning the work of My hands, you command Me.
As for our Redeemer, the LORD of hosts is His name, The Holy One of Israel.
