"Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me;

and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is

the one who is least among you all who is the greatest."

(Luke 9:48)

1. For a better and peaceful future, let us not ignore the little children; let us guide them to the right road for spiritual development:

  • Proverbs 22:6, "Guide the children to right road, so that when they grow old they will do right things."

2. During Jesus’ time, it was emphasized the importance of the little children:

    Do not cause them to stumble.

  • Matthew 18:6, “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” (Mark 9:42)

    Do not rebuke the little children, to such belongs the kingdom of God.

  • Mark 10:13-14, "And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God."

    Do not embitter your children.

  • Colossians 3:21, "Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged."

3. Inform the children of the New Creation

  • 2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!"

      In addition, let them know of the following verse:

  • Hebrews 8:13, "By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.

4. Under the New Creation, guide the little children not of complicated religions of complicated rules but love, which is the greatest:

5. Let the children to know of this verse, encouraging them to mingle with each other in love regardless of differences:

  • Matthew 19:19, "Honor your father and mother, and love your neighbor as yourself."

7. Guide the little children to pray, no longer in the man-made church (Acts 17:24) but inside the room and in secret:

  • Matthew 6:5-6, "And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

8. Guide the little children to care for people, not idols; humanity, not idolatry:

9. Guide the little children to love their neighbor as themselves saying that it is more important than the burnt offerings and sacrifices:

  • Mark 12:33, "To love God with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
