What does the Bible say about children?
With this list of Bible verses about children you can see that the Bible teaches that children are loved by God very much.
Recently I have been reminded of this by the fact that shortly my daughter is coming home again. Although the situation of her returning is not what I had hoped for her life, I am still excited to see her and to see God show His love for her in awesome ways.
So I cracked open my study Bible and reminded myself about what the Bible says about children by making this list of Bible verses about children for you. I hope you enjoy the list.
Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.
Fathers, do not aggravate your children, or they will become discouraged.
I will teach all your children, and they will enjoy great peace.
He gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother. Praise the Lord!
3 Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.
4 Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior’s hands.
5 How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.
13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
“But watch out! Be careful never to forget what you yourself have seen. Do not let these memories escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to pass them on to your children and grandchildren.
6 And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. 7 Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. 8 Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. 9 Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
The living, the living man, he shall praise You,
As I do this day; The father shall make known Your truth to the children.
14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”
Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven.
The last two scriptures about children show that Jesus not only wants children to be a part of His family and wants a relationship with them but it also shows that Jesus honors the heart of children and encourages us to be like them when it comes to our relationship with our Heavenly Father.
I encourage you today, as you are seeking Bible verses for your children and about your children that you stop for a moment and think about whether or not God is wanting you to become more like them in your relationship with Him.
