What did Jesus say about Kids

Jesus’ teachings and actions towards children reveal a profound understanding and respect for their significance within the Kingdom of God. Here are key Bible verses that highlight Jesus’ perspective on children:

  1. “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” (Luke 18:16): Jesus emphasizes that the Kingdom of God is open to children, illustrating the importance of receiving the kingdom with childlike faith and humility .
  2. “Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:4): Here, Jesus uses a child to teach about greatness in the Kingdom of Heaven, indicating that humility and simplicity are highly valued .
  3. “But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.'” (Matthew 19:14): Again, Jesus welcomes children, demonstrating their inherent value and role as exemplars of faith within God’s kingdom .

Three Main Takeaways:

  1. Children as Exemplars of Faith: Jesus’ teachings and actions consistently elevate children as models of the faith and attitude required to enter the Kingdom of God. Their simplicity, trust, and humility serve as a standard for believers.
  2. Inclusivity of the Kingdom: Jesus’ insistence on allowing children to come to Him underscores the inclusive nature of the Kingdom of God. It is open to all, irrespective of age or societal status, who approach God with childlike faith.
  3. Value of Humility: Through His interactions with children, Jesus emphasizes the value of humility. In God’s Kingdom, greatness is not measured by power or prestige but by the capacity to humble oneself and depend on God, as children do.
