Children are a gift and a blessing from God. This is what we know and have been taught by our parents. They come into the world innocent and pure, and they grow up to be our future. That’s the way it is meant to be.
As parents, it is important to teach our children life lessons that will help them stay innocent for as long as possible, and the Bible contains words of wisdom to help us do that and help us raise them and teach them the way of the Lord.
