Jesus Loves the Little Children

I have had some Bible verses about children in my head since I decided to start this blog. I thought I would put a few of them here, as well as a few more I found… may you allow yourself to “be like a child” and love God with all your heart and soul!!

“Then they brought little children to Him, that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them. But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.’ And he took them in up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them.”
-Mark 10: 13-16

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

“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.’
-Matthew 18: 2-4

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

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.” – John 1:12

“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.” – 1 John 3: 2-3

“Fathers, do not exasperate your children, instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” – Ephesians 6:4
