What is the key priority when it comes to children and God, and why are they so important and precious to Him? How should we go about raising our children according to God so as to give them true understanding and become wise and knowledgeable in Godís ways? What are Godís principles when it comes to children and how should we apply them? Jesus answers many of these questions in Mark 10 and shows us how precious children are to God.

As we examine Mark 10:13-15, we can see how precious our children are to Him though taking a close look at this passage. ďThen they brought little children to Him, that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them. But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.Ē

Let us take a little time and examine Ephesians 6:1-4 and see if we can find the key priority when it comes to children and God through this passage. ďChildren, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise: that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth. And you fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.Ē Now, let us see what Proverbs 22:6 has to offer. ďTrain up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.Ē

So, how do we raise our children and when do we start training them? We know that going to Church with our children and doing Bible study and spending quality time with them is our main priority and in turn is a great thing that is leading them to the Kingdom of Heaven. How do we get them to trust us and when do we start training them?

When it comes to training our children and gaining trust it all starts from the day they were born and the first time you held that precious little infant in your arms and close to your heart. When they felt the warmth of your body and saw the affection and kindness that came in abundance for them, they knew it was true love from the start. Then in turn they put their full trust in you with the knowledge that you would always be there and always be true.

When they take their first steps with those little wobbling legs not knowing what would happen, they began to experience their first faith knowing that you would be there. Every time they fell down you were there to give them the encouragement that they needed to get back up and continue on.

Now that they are walking big and strong, youíll find that they have problems distinguishing right from wrong. They come to you with all their problems even though small, they know they can count on you to lead them straight to Godís law. They find His ways very attractive because now you are keeping Godís laws all so active.

As they continue to keep vigorously seeking Godís law, you get the privilege of watching them grow wise and tall. Because you took the time to put down what you were doing no matter if it was important if even at all, you knew it was up to you to teach them the law. You had the understanding that their foundation had to be strong so you worked on their character to help them along. Even though their problems were small, look what you accomplished through Gods law. Your children are now healthy and strong. Give thanks to God for helping you to lead them along.

Your children now have the understanding and were loved from the start, so you now know this world wonít get hold of their heart. They will love God with full strength and all their heart and from Godís word they will never depart. All that they learned from their youth down through they will keep it in their heart whenever it is due.

The moral of this article is, when it comes to children and God is that we are all Gods children and when it comes to raising our children we should stick to Godís principles. As long as we stick to Godís principles, we know that as true Christians you canít go wrong.

Through us teaching our children Gods ways, when bad influences come upon them it will automatically set off an alarm sending them a signal that something is not right. They will say in their heart, ďThis does not correspond to what my mother and father taught me according to Godís ways.Ē And because you were always there for them who are they going to trust, you or the bad influence?
