16th September 2018, My husband and I made a special commitment before God in the presence of our friends and family. We made a commitment and promise to train up our son in the way of the Lord and show him the path of life we know. For us, baby dedication is an acknowledgment that we need God’s help in parenting and we are willing to submit to God’s way of parenting.
God’s love and our relationship with Him is our source of peace, freedom, joy, and immeasurable blessing. It will indeed be cruel for us to not let our child enjoy the goodness we enjoy as parents. While our child will someday be able to choose his own path, our duty as parents is to lead by example and not be hypocrites. Seeing or watching my child serve the living God will be my greatest joy and accomplishment as a mother.
Proverbs 22:6 King James Version (KJV)
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
