Children are humanity’s most treasured gift from God. A child’s life and innocence are considered to be precious blessings not just to their parents, but also to everyone who surrounds them.
This is also why many people consider a parent’s love for their child to be the strongest form of love there is. A mother and a father would be willing to swim across oceans just to protect their child from suffering. Good thing, parents don’t need to deal with ordeals alone as God has a special place in his heart for young ones. (Read: An Expert’s Tip to Instilling Faith in Young Children)
