One of my favorite Bible verses about children is, “Children are a gift from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” (Psalms 127:3)
Can the Lord make it any simpler?
Children are always a blessing! They are filled with such joy and laughter. Children are so fragile from the beginning, motivating us to protect them and nurture them. God speaks directly to mothers and to fathers in His Word!
The Blessing of Future Generations
Children are beautiful, full of happiness, and are a radiant bright light in this world of darkness. No matter where you are in the world, or what your background is, children are a gift from God. Our future generations.
Children remind us to live more, trust more, laugh more, and seek the love of our Heavenly Father more. God calls us His children, because the love of a child is so precious and fragile, that we should protect it and defend it.
May these Bible verses about children bring a smile to your face knowing that all children are a blessing, and that God loves all of His little children. God Bless You Abundantly!
