God Made The Family For Children


Many child psychoanalysts believe that mental health and behavioural problems could be attributed to early childhood. 


Developmental psychologist John Bowlby’s theory of attachment suggests that children come into the world biologically pre-programmed to form attachments with others, because this will help them to survive. His thought was, where there is maternal deprivation children often developed mental and physical disabilities


What Bowlby didn’t explain is how children are pre-programed. However, we know from Psalm 139 that God knitted us together in our mother’s womb; He fearfully and wonderfully made us! The maternal and paternal roles in a child’s development are God ordained.


We were all orphans once but God adopted us into His family. How might you be thankful today for being part of His family?
