"O my son, O son of my womb, O son of my vows" NIV
What can I pick out of this verse in Proverbs 31? Hannah prayed for a son and made a vow to God that if He would give her a child, she would give that child to God. She fulfilled her promise.
I think that when we are expecting a baby, especially if it is our first one, we are filled with awe, panic, and everything else in between. If we're Christians, we'll go to the Lord in prayer knowing that we aren't able to raise that child on our own and that we need His help if we're ever going to make a good go of it.
What a great responsibility it is to be a parent, especially in today's society where "anything goes."
