Psalm 127:3; Proverbs 17:6 Even though children had a low status in antiquity, the Bible takes a surprisingly high view of them.

Mark 10:13-16; Matthew 18:3, 10
Jesus, likewise, favored children and used them as the example for how adults need to be to enter the Kingdom of God.

Some typical objections to getting involved in children’s ministry:
Objection 1 - “But, I don’t have any kids.”
Objection 2 - “But, I’m not good with kids.”
Objection 3 - “But, isn’t that the parents’ responsibility?”
Objection 4 - “But, I don’t have a clue how to work with kids.”

Deuteronomy 6:4-7; 11:18-19; Ephesians 6:1-4
Parents have a responsibility before God to teach and train their children.

Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Let’s be the kind of community that values children and trains them up in the way of the Lord, without falling into the trap of idolizing them on the one hand or neglecting them on the other.
