I was thinking back on my last mission’s group trip.
We visited a children’s orphanage in San Lucas Guatemala.
The children were so delighted to see us; we played games, did arts and crafts, and shared Bible stories. We wanted all the children to understand and know Jesus is with them and loves each one of them.
The children may not have their parents today, but I am thankful for the Godly people who do work tirelessly there in the orphanage. They are hard working people with huge hearts, hugs and warm smiles and they allow us to come into their orphanage to minister and love on their children.
Bible verses helps us understand what the Bible says about all of our children, the importance of raising and teaching our children.
Remember the Bible tells us not to merely listen to the word of God but to do what it says (James 1:22). Take what you read here, write it down and put it into action!
I pray that God speaks to you and touches your heart with these Scriptures
Isaiah 54:13 All your children shall be taught by the LORD, and great shall be the peace of your children.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
Proverbs 29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother
Proverbs 29:17 Discipline your son, and he will give you rest; he will give delight to your heart.
Ephesians 6:4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Psalm 127:3-5 Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
We thank you for all of our children we know that each and every child is fearfully and wonderfully made by You to do works in Jesus Christ. Amen.
