Children are a gift straight from God — our faith says so.
God calls children a true gift and a blessing, and they are. Children are filled with joy, love, innocence, and laughter — all things that adults can lose sight of as they grow older. But it’s also our job to make sure we cherish these gifts in our kids and nurture their faith as they become adults themselves. This is God’s will — and nothing proves this more than the many Bible verses about children.
The lines of scripture about children also provide us with a guideline on how to raise them. God suggests that they need discipline and to honor their parents, but it’s only because he wants them to succeed in all that they do. Just as Jesus obeyed his heavenly father, our children on Earth should follow in his footsteps. Then, they will be filled with hope, faith, and love — and live eternally in heaven with the Lord.
