Bible on Children – Blog

The innocence in a child’s face attracts all of us. Their sweet and shy faces always glitter with a heavenly charm, which has an overwhelming appeal, even to the eyes of a cold hearted person.

Though, it changes as they grow older, God had decided to bestow them with an impeccable nature. Bible has even equated Holiness to the innocence of a child.

Though children can be mischievous at times, their face symbolizes innocence, meekness and humility. In the Bible, verses mentioning children have been used to show a person’s spiritual re-birth.

Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.” Mathew 18: 2-5

“Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.” 1 Peter 2:1-3 

Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3

“Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. 15 Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” Mark 10: 14,15

But, there are also warnings for all of us; for the youths, parents and the elderly:

 “Brothers, do not be children in your thinking. Be infants in evil, but in your thinking be mature.” 1 Corinthians 14:20

“Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.” Colossians 3:21

Dear parents, God has said it very carefully that you don’t offend your children, lest they become a threat to all of us… It is also written;

“Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.” Psalms 8:2

God Bless
