Children are precious!, friends, brothers and sisters,
This is the day  Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it!
November 14th is celebrated as the "Children's Day" in India. Well, are children to be remembered and appreciated just on one day in the year? 
Children are a gift from God. He entrusted them to us. There are angels assigned to watch over little children. 
**Matthew 18: 10 "See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven." 
And these angels always watch the Father's face. So we need to value our kids, each of them are special in God's eyes. 
Let kids not be aborted or ignored. God cares for a child, right from when it's formed in it's mothers womb. 
They are precious!
 **HEBREWS 11:23 says,"By Faith Moses' parents hid him for 3 months after he was born because they say he was no ordinary child and they were not afraid of the king's edict."
Every child on earth is special because God has great plans for each of them.
The Bible says in 
**Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." 
So, If we show our children when they are young the right and only way of truth, as they grow older even if they go astray or wander away, they will know to find their way back!
The only way we need to show are kids is the way of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the only way, truth and life!
John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
If our kids wander away from the path they are trained to walk as we fervently pray the Lord will bring them back  from their captivity. With our Lord there is always hope, as we persevere in prayer the Lord will bring them back. God's Word says in...
**Jeremiah 31:16-17 "Thus saith the Lord; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord; and they [your children] shall come again from the land of the enemy. And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord, that thy children shall come again to their own border."
Let us always pray blessing over our children. God has given them to us to bring them up in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Bill Gothard writes, "A verbal blessing is made up of three powerful forces: our words, God's Word, and God's name. The power of our words alone is affirmed by the Scripture that states, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21)."
Let us be there for our kids when they need us...
May God bless all children young and old, now and always.
