As a mom, and especially on this recent Mother’s Day, there are no more comforting words to hear than these spoken from Jesus:
Matthew 19:13-15 ~ Jesus Blesses the Children
Children are a blessing in so many ways. Whether you have children of your own or have a chance to interact with children in other ways, I cannot think of anything more precious. Children teach us what is important in life. They see things through a different lens than us adults.
Children are a promise of renewal. Even though we have sadness in the world, there is something about seeing a new baby that washes over us like a wave of hope. Jesus makes all things new and Heaven makes all things fair. From Jesus’ own words, “Heaven is made up of children and people like this.” Heaven is a joyous place, for the children.
One of the most important things we can do in this life is to take care of the children, teach them, show them kindness, and let them come to Jesus. Children are naturally attracted to Jesus. They are fresh from God. And a mom praying for her child is a force that can change the world.
