Jesus And The Little Children

Luke 18:15-17

Memory Verse:
“Assuredly, I say to you. Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it” (Luke 18:17).

Have you ever watched a little child receive a gift? Did you notice the excitement, the scream or a dance? No child remains cold or lukewarm when presented with a dream gift. This is how we are to
receive the Kingdom of God. Little children receive gifts with a sense of awe, wonder and joy.
In the 1960s when it was not common for girls to get formal education, a girl secured admission into a prestigious school and when her parents affirmed their intention to send her to the school, she could not sleep for five days out of excitement. Imagine her joy on the resumption day at school.
Children do not hide their feelings; they are curious and excited. Being inquisitive is how children learn. They are fearless: they jump, climb, fall and get up. They grow daily. God created the family and the children are a gift from Him. Because of this, God cares about how children are raised and nurtured (Psalm 127:3-5). There is a piece of divinity in every child which parents must
strive to preserve (Deuteronomy 6:7-9). Children were considered to hold the lowest status in society in the ancient world. They could be seen, but must not be heard. The society is changing now as children assume more prominent positions with some of them being geniuses contributing their roles to the development of nations. God’s image will grow and mature in our children as we trust Him with our children.

Prayer Points:
1. O Lord, please keep our children from the evil influences of the world.
2. Permit that our children will be among the eminent ones in the nation.
