children are gifts psalms 113 9 127 3 5
Children are Gifts: Psalms 113:9; 127:3-5
  • He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the LORD!
    • Psalm 113:9 NRSV
  • Sons are indeed a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the sons of one's youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them. He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
    • Psalm 127:3-5 NRSV
children called to learn adults called to teach deut 6 4 9
Children Called to Learn- Adults Called to Teach. Deut. 6:4-9
  • Hear, O Israel: The LORD is our God, the LORD alone. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
    • Deut. 6:4-9 NRSV (See also Mark 12:29-31)
jesus teachings matthew 18 1 6
Jesus’ TeachingsMatthew 18:1-6
  • At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?“ He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. "If any of you put a stumbling block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were fastened around your neck and you were drowned in the depth of the sea.
    • Matt. 18:1-6 NRSV
jesus teaching mark 10 13 16
Jesus’ TeachingMark 10:13-16
  • People were bringing little children to him in order that he might touch them; and the disciples spoke sternly to them. But when Jesus saw this, he was indignant and said to them, "Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.“And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.
