From the book of Psalms we can teach our kids that they are special creations of the God of the universe.
This verse speaks to the fact that our ultimate identity is in Christ. We need to help our kids understand that they are unique individuals created by God for a specific purpose. Psalm 139:16
As parents, our job is to pray for God to show us his plan for them and then direct our kids down the right path. Instead of feeling the pressure to make things happen for our kids, we can trust that God will open up the opportunities our kids need to fulfill his plan for them. Proverbs 22:6
