Bringing up children, a good work!

Did you know that bringing up children in the bible is classified as a good work? Yes, may be  you are stuck at home, looking after the children, you are doing a good work according to scripture. 

I Timothy 5 verses 9 to 10

Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,
Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints’ feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

From the above scripture, bringing up children, lodging strangers, washing the saints feet and relieving the afflicted are all classified as good works.

So if you are currently bringing up children you are doing a good work in the sight of the Lord.

Keep the good work up and do it diligently.
