Your wife will be like a fruitful grapevine, flourishing within your home. Your children will be like vigorous young olive trees as they sit around your table. Psalm 128:3
When I first read this verse, I fell in love with the flourishing part of it. How much do we, as women, want to flourish in our own homes! Recently, I've come to notice the broader beauty of the promises contained in this one verse. I love how it is a promise to the husband (the one who fears the LORD), and within it is a promise for his wife to flourish, and yet another promise over his children that they will be vigorous (strong, healthy, full of energy). This beautiful verse contains promises that cover the entire family. I see this promise hanging over the gathering table of our homes, as our children grow up underneath the promise of His Word, vigorous in faith and the Holy Spirit.
