Our Children, Our Children's Children,Our friend's Children or just the world of Children.What a blessing to know that we can have the little darlings in our lives.Watching my parents raise us as I grew up was very interesting, because we were always put first.My parent's love kept us safe, and never lacking for any one thing.What ever we might have thought we needed on a material level rather we got it are not.My parents made sure we had the most important thing and that was their time, concern,care,patience,love.(The Knowing of God in our lives)When you are a child that is so important.Because you will forget about the material things.Has a child grow you will see them take on the same things that you hold dear to yourself as a parent.

If you give them care they show concern for others,If you give them love they will be a loving person and have love for themselves as well as others.It is very important that we show our Children that the love for life it self is greater than any one thing that this world has to offer.

At this day and time so many innocent children are not sheltered as they should be from harm. I think that it is very important that the world know what God has said about our Children and how God feels about our children. But as God says (His Children) he gave them as a gift to us.

Children are very precious pearls. They are to be polished with love and care. Never to be thrown to the swine of this world to be trampled.But if they are trampled in any way by the swine of this life it is required of us to pick them back up and polish them again and let them shine. These pearls that God has given us will shine regardless of the circumstances that this life put them through.They will never banish are break to pieces, because the Creator has made them stronger to stand through the test of time.Let"s see what God said about his Children;

Psalms 45:16

16.Instead of thy fathers shall be thy Children,whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth

( God says here they are more important than we ourselves.)


3.Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house.Thy Children like olive plants round about thy table.

( God say here that they bring life to our life, and that even in life what we take in;Our children are in our presence to give our lives meaning.)

Now remember a Prince shall hold royalty and a place at the throne has it is said in Psalms 45:16.

Now if God calls Children Olive plants.

The Olive gives off the finest of oil.Psalms 128:3 It's based upon the observation that the shoots springing from the roots of the olive tree protect the parent tree, and like children survive the demise of the parent.Also it is a plant of the promise land.

God holds a high order of protection for Children:

Proverbs 17:6

6.Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.


16.But Jesus called them unto him,and said,suffer little children to come unto me,and forbid them not: for in such is the kingdom of God. Also found in(Matthew19:13)

And even a child stature is highly esteemed as greatness.Here God says:

Matthew18:1-6 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus,saying,Who is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven.

2. And Jesus called a little child unto him,and set him in the midst of them,

3. And he said, Verily i say unto you,Except you be converted,and become as a little children, you shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

4.Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child ,the same is greatness in the Kingdom of Heaven.

5. And whosoever shall receive on such little child in My Name receives me.

6. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me,It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck,and that he was drowned in the depth of the sea.


My heart cries out for our children they are the pureness of God. May we pray that we nurture our children in a Godly manner.In life they will shine bright. If we know that God gave them to us as a gift.How is our stewardship?

    Wow! Wonderful Hub!! If this doesn't hit home and bring us down to earth, what will? Thank you sister for reminding us how precious our children are, and how God loves all the children of the world, and sees them all as special gifts. Lord, I pray that you give us insight to be humbled and walk according to your truths and ways, and come to you as little children. Teach us all your fruits of the Spirit in order to show patience, love, kindness, and compassion towards those who are defenseless and innocent. Teach us Lord to Love unconditionally, so that they may know love in You. Amen!

    Children are the light of this world. They seek after knowledge and love. God wants us to be his children so we seek after the same. He wants us to always seek him as our Father so he can teach us and nurture us and polish us so we can shine as a light to this world. Thank you SwiftlyClean for another great hub! Blessings!

    A very insightful hub. I agree that children are our future and we must shower them with God's love and demonstrate God's love. But at some point we have to let go and let God guide them. As a mother, myself I pray without ceasing, but still my children sometimes go down the hard road. I like you love my children and am very hopeful that one day they will all blossom into beautiful flowers and demonstrate God's love and will.
