Generally people look upon youth as a part of our world that is inexperienced and filled with various struggles that must take place to gain a mature understanding of life. My view is that Jesus has brought about His craftsmanship and genius in creating what has the potential to shape our future.

The issues that each child faces stem from the parents that God has entrusted to them. Every child is a gift from God, made in His image. The persons in charge of raising these miracles must adhere to God’s commands and follow the greatest example of righteousness that is the life and times of Jesus.

Everyone starts off innocent. Each child is clay and the potter is Jesus. Look at the potential of each child, God has a perfect plan for each child’s life and it starts with godly parents or a godly person.

Psalm 127:3-5 “Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man or woman whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

“2 Timothy 3:14-15” But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

“Matthew 18:2-6” He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. Causing to Stumble: “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.

“If you desire to reap eternal rewards in heaven and enjoy prosperity on earth: Understand that children are the future *Treat children with love and respect* Never ever provoke children *Teach children about Jesus* Gently correct children when necessary *Build confidence and self-esteem in them* Develop a child’s gifts and talents* Remember that we all began as a child!
