Children Are a Gift From God
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
3 John 1:4
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.
The Little Children and Jesus
Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 15 When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.
Children of God
For all who are led by God's Spirit are God's children. For you have not received a spirit of slavery that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba! Father!" The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Romans 8:14-16 Dear friends, let us continuously love one another, because love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born from God and knows God.The person who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:7-8
