When I see a newborn baby, I can remember God’s design is personal. He made us! (Psalm 139:13-18, 16)
When I see a baby smile, squeal with delight, clap his/her hands, or respond to music, I can remember do not inhibit praise to Jesus; children praise God and so should I. (Matthew 21:15-16)
When I see a little child’s sensitive nature and tender heart, I can remember it is wise to keep tender to God’s ways. (Proverbs 4:3-4)
When I give a hungry baby his/her bottle, I can remember to eagerly desire to study God’s Word. (1 Peter 2:2-3)
When I am tired and a child wants to crawl up on my lap for a story or cuddles, I can remember Jesus let the little children come to Him.
When I tell little children about God’s greatness and care, I can remember I am obeying God by encouraging their faith in Him and declaring His wonderfulness to another generation.
(Psalm 145:4, Matthew 18:1-6/Mark 9:33-42, 2 Timothy 3:15)
When I see a child reach out their arms to me so I can hold them, I can remember Jesus said we need to trust Him with a childlike faith.
When I feel a little one snuggle down in my arms and go to sleep in security and comfort, I can remember God always cares!
(Isaiah 43:4a, 7, 49:15-16, Zephaniah 3:17)
