Our children are very special to us, but did you know that they are even more special to God? It doesn't seem possible, but it's true. It is our job as parents to make sure that they learn the truth about Jesus and that we give them opportunity to get to know Him themselves. It will help them in this tough world that they are growing up in to know what Jesus will do for them. We cannot always be there with our children, but the Lord can. He can keep them healthy and safe at all times; but, it's our responsibility to make sure this happens.
Deuteronomy 6:6 "Write these commandments that I've given you on your heart. Get them inside of you and get them inside of your children."
Psalm 78:5& 6 "He planted a witness in Jacob, set His Word firmly in Israel, then commanded our parents to teach it to their children - so the next generation would know and all generations to come - know that the truth and tell the stories so their children can trust in God."
Mark 10:13 "The people brought their children to Jesus, hoping He might touch them. The disciples shooed them off. But Jesus was irate and let them know it: Don't push these children away. Don't ever get between them and Me. These children are the very center of life in the Kingdom."
