Precious Children, 12/25/14

Children are so precious.  The word of God has so many beautiful things to say about God's love for children.  Here are just a few passages about how God sees his children, of which the most precious are the little ones:

Psalm 127:3-5New King James Version (NKJV)
3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
5 Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.

Zechariah 2:8
For thus says the Lord of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.

Matthew 19:14
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

Mark 7:27
But Jesus said to her, “Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”

Let us always remember to think of them first and ask ourselves when we consider things:

"Is it good for the children?"

That is one of the very best barometers we have for whether something should be embraced or taught or emulated or praised in our culture attitudes, speech and actions.

BLESS THE CHILDREN , LORD!! We thank you for them.
