The good Shepherd entreats us to be humble like a child. The Bible talks about Children and enshrines their importance for both parents and God himself.
The relationship between God and Christians is like a father and a child. While we are called to be sons of God we ought to know how to interact with him. There are a couple of Bible verses about children that will help us better understand how important it is to be an obedient child.
Children are special gifts from God and anyone who lays hands on one must first give thanks to the Lord; just as how Leah was grateful for each child God gave her.
If you are seeking children as a woman, talk to Him; say some pregnancy prayer for a miracle baby. God desires to help you outright if your request meets His will —Surely you will become a mother. Amen!.
When we go through some of these Bible verses about Children we get to understand that; a child must have the natural and accepted traits of humbleness, obedience, innocence, etc.
The responsibility of training up a child to be a responsible adult lays on the head of the parents. God loves his children. The Bible has stated that anyone who believes in God and his Son Christ Jesus is a child of God.
And that relationship should reflect the relationship between a parent and a child. Jesus Christ once called on some children and blessed them. We must also show love to our children and teach them the ways of the Lord.
In this post, I have made a collection of helpful Bible verses about children to help any parent grasp a better understanding of how precious children are in the sight of the Lord.
