37 Powerful Meaningful Bible Verses About Children and Parenting

There’s a saying that rings true for all parents: Having a child is like having your heart walking around outside of your body. As any mother or father knows, the process of raising a child is rich with emotions, uncertainties, joys, and sorrows. Whether you’re a parent, expectant parent, or grandparent, there’s an endless well of comfort, advice, and quotes about gratitude to be found in the Bible. After all, we’re all children of God, so it’s no surprise His Word is full of parenting wisdom, and understanding, when it comes to the unconditional love (and, also: the worrying, discipline, second-guessing…) that goes into caring for another human. If you’re looking to celebrate a new mom with baby shower ideas, these words might offer just the encouragement she needs, and they’re just the thing to jot down in a card coupled with a gift for a new mom. They’re also worth taking note of for yourself, for those days when you need a little reassurance that you’re directing your child—your heart—down the right path.

 

  

 

 

Those who follow the Christian faith all begin as children of God, but becoming a parent yourself is a profound moment that marks a shift in your life. You now carry so much unconditional love for your child or children, but you are also now responsible for providing a nourishing upbringing that sparks their emotional, mental, and spiritual development. Children are blessings from God, and so is being a parent. But that doesn't mean this new role is easy or without any obstacles. These Bible verses about children and parenting not only provide guidance, but also remind you that God will protect them as fiercely as you do.

When your child is born, you may choose to have them baptized to mark the beginning of their Christian journey. After your child's baptism, it is your responsibility to remind them of their relationship with God as they grow up. Teaching your child good behaviors can be a learning process — especially for new parents. But these Bible verses about parenting will give you clarity and inspiration so you can remind your children of their duty to God. Parenting is no small feat, and God knows that, which is why these passages will help you through the harder years and make your heart feel full with love on the good days and the bad days.
