Matthew 19:1-14     The  Family

Matthew 19:14 “But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”

Today’s verse reminds us that the gospel concerns every aspect of life, from the public to the private, from the church to the home, from the market place to the bedroom.  God’s standards apply in every situation.  The family is a very special unit created by God and blessed by God.  Adultery or fornication is simply against God’s will.  Children are a gift from God, and should be loved and cared for and taught about Jesus from the outset.  No child is too small to be included in family prayers.  The best present that a parent can give to the child is to bring that child to the Lord Jesus.  Jesus will never turn away any child who come to him.
