God calls children a blessing and a gift! Their spirits are filled with innocence, joy and laughter. Jesus actually tells us to be like children and to come to Him full of faith and trust.

The popular children's song "Jesus Loves the Little Children" reminds us that "all are precious in His sight" and no matter your race, gender or nationality, God wants to see all children come to Him. Jesus died on the cross for all people!

Just as children need discipline and correction in order to stay on the right path, God tells us in Scripture that we are His children and He corrects us as a father. God wants us to succeed and have a future of hope and success, just like we want to see for our own children!

May these Bible verses about children lift your spirits and remind you of the tender heart that God wants all of His children to have.
