God Trusts Us With His Children

“When a child is born, God places in our arms something that He Himself loves very much; it is precious in His sight; He has a plan for it; it can do for Him the work that no one else can do.

What a responsibility for us!
God trusts us with His children,
we have a ministry to them.

It is from a mother that a child first learns that God is its Heavenly Father. That it may speak to Him.”

Lady Alastair Graham, née Lady Meriel Olivia Bathurst
quoted by Catherine Leaf, “Children Under Six
The Parents’ Review, 1942, pp. 335–339 Parents
