The greatest gift God has given us is the gift of life. Everything else would not be possible without life. You didn’t create yourself nor did your parents make you. You are the direct result of the providence and grace of God. God has given your something you could never give yourself and He is working through you to extend that gift of life to the next generation.
First things first means that since God has given you life, you are to give the life that flows through you back to God. Your children and the next generation you must give to God and do everything in your power to direct them to the Lord. The first born has already been claimed by God as His. You have no right over your first born. But the rest of your offspring must be given to God in love and service. Those that live with you and in your circle of influence must also be given to God. There is no greater blessing than parents surrendering their children to their God given destiny. We all want the best for the next generation and only in the Lord that they will get there. Daily pray for them, dedicate , instruct and fight for them to serve the Lord.
