“It's never too late to have a happy childhood.” ― Tom Robbins
“Children see magic because they look for it.” ― Christopher Moore
The people brought children to Jesus, hoping he might touch them. The disciples shooed them off. But Jesus was irate and let them know it: "Don't push these children away. Don't ever get between them and me. These children are at the very center of life in the kingdom. Mark this: Unless you accept God's kingdom in the simplicity of a child, you'll never get in." Then, gathering the children up in his arms, he laid his hands of blessing on them. Mark 10:13-16 (MSG)
“The soul is healed by being with children.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“Your children are the greatest gift God will give to you, and their souls the heaviest responsibility He will place in your hands. Take time with them, teach them to have faith in God. Be a person in whom they can have faith. When you are old, nothing else you've done will have mattered as much.” ― Lisa Wingate
“A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on.” ― Carl Sandburg
“Nothing you do for children is ever wasted.” ― Garrison Keillor
Why else should we value our children? Jesus says: "If you give them a hard time, bullying or taking advantage of their simple trust, you'll soon wish you hadn't. You'd be better off dropped in the middle of the lake with a millstone around your neck. Doom to the world for giving these God-believing children a hard time! Hard times are inevitable, but you don't have to make it worse—and it's doomsday to you if you do. Matthew 18:6-7 (MSG)
"Watch that you don't treat a single one of these childlike believers arrogantly. You realize, don't you, that their personal angels are constantly in touch with my Father in heaven? Matthew 18:10 (MSG)
“Anyone who does anything to help a child in his life is a hero to me. ” ― Fred Rogers
“My best advice to anyone who wants to raise a happy, mentally healthy child is: Keep him or her as far away from a church as you can.” ― Frank Zappa
Always set a good example for others. Titus 2:7 (CEV)
