“Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not; for such is the Kingdom of Heaven” (Mark 10:14). In Genesis 42:22, Reuben, a brother of Joseph, said, “Didn’t I tell you not to sin against the child?” These two verses speak of the value of children, the innocent ones who depend upon adults to care for them.
However, adults do behave badly and put children at risk. The Bible calls upon all adults to treat and raise their children in the right way. Which means, no murdering or injuring the child. Don’t teach your children bad habits by word or example. Also children need to learn, so educate your children in secular studies, and not only that but start bringing them to church so they can learn about the Lord (Ephesians 6:1-4).
And guess what? You will too!
