Let the Little Children



Teach your children.
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
Romans 8:16 | NIV

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
3 John 1:4


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

Proverbs 17:6 | KJV

    1. Parents need to be the ones in charge, not the other way around.

  3. I am from an era when in Public Schools the Bible was used for memory work. In the 3rd Grade one of the scriptures was the 100th Psalm. It is still there in my head today among many more. I enjoy seeing children 'perform' or take part in church. Their actions as well as their 'talent' is lovely and entertaining.
    Thanks

  4. PS: Children's children ARE the JOY of our lives. I tell my grand daughter, yes honey Stella is sweet and beautiful, BUT not as sweet as you were! For me it is the Grands, not the great grands. I love to see my sons act so silly over their grands, as I did OURS> ;-)

    1. Our kids becoming gr-parents is such a great thot. I only hope we'll be around to see that!

  5. I immediately thought of the song by Crosby, Stills, and Nash. Teach Your Children Well. My children and grandchildren have been the joys of my life.

    1. That is an awesome song. Heard it many years ago, didn't think much about it, until I had children.

  6. Have to teach the kiddos well, which many seem not to do, as they are too all about me.

  9. I remember when almost everyone went to church, the pledge was honored, and students didn't talk back to their teachers. Those days are not these days, or at least in large part they are not. :(
