PRECIOUS JEWELS




PRECIOUS JEWELS

Little children, little children,
Who love their Redeemer,
Are the jewels, precious jewels,
His loved and His own.
Like the stars of the morning,
His brightness adorning,
They shall shine in their beauty,
Bright gems for His crown.

This old song reminds us of the verse of scripture which expresses how GOD feels about children

Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

This is one of the most succinct statements in all of scripture. It is so all encompassing that no one could argue against it.

Luke 17:2 It would be better to be thrown into the sea with a millstone hung around your neck than to cause one of these little ones to fall into sin.

This is one of those cautions in the scripture that doesn’t have an expiration date.

Psalms 127:3 Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.

1 Samuel 1:26-28 And she said, Oh my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the LORD. For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him: Therefore also I have lent him to the LORD; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the LORD.

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Most parents have learned that it is in the first few years you must train your child, if you don’t take them to church and read the Bible to them and tell them the Bible stories when they are young you have missed your chance to direct their path.
