Children are gifts from God.
By dedicating your child, you commit to raising up your little one in God's ways and you also create an opportunity for your child to develop a desire to love and follow God.
Deuteronomy 6:4-7 "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up."
