Text: 1 Timothy 5: 1-7
Raising children of faith honours the Lord and therefore, a parent who raises such children should be honoured (v.4). It is a good return on the family that raised a child of faith, a child that shows godliness. A widow, much as she faces difficulties in raising children as a single parent, she is honoured when she raises children of faith. These are children who honour God and are out to please Him at all costs (Gen.39:9).

Meditate on verse 4. What is God teaching you in this verse?

Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, help widows and widowers to raise children of faith. Amen.
