“Then Manoah prayed to the LORD, and said, “O my Lord, please let the Man of God whom You sent come to us again and teach us what we shall do for the child who will be born.”” Judges 13:8 NKJV
Manoah sought wisdom from the LORD as to what he should do for his child. If we are parents or soon-to-be parents, do we do the same?
It is so natural for us to seek the counsel of the people around us for such matters. We may even spend much time researching the wide range of resources available to us for bringing up children.
But the most important thing to do may be just to seek the LORD. “Teach us what we should do for the child…” – This was Manoah’s request. And his prayer was answered. He was told what to do concerning Samson. We ought to do the same.
