In our family we love dedicating our children to the Lord in front of our church and family. We have done so for all of our children, and it is kind of a big deal! 😁
When I was dedicated I wore a white dress, to this day I still have it and we put it on Gracie to wear for her dedication too, it was very special. For our boys, we bought an outfit that is white satin and they all wore that!
In Deuteronomy 6:4-7 NKJV it says this. Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
In 1 Samuel 1 we read about Hannah presenting her son Samuel to the Lord. In Luke 2:22 we read that Joseph and Mary bought Jesus to temple and presented him to the Lord in the same way that we do now days.
Reflecting on these scriptures we believe that we are to do this for our children. We love our kids so much and we want the very best for them. We will do this by teaching them God’s principles and showing them these in our own lives. We want to dedicate them to the Lord because they are His, just like we are His. Children are a blessing from the Lord.
