Bible Verses for Children’s Protection
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways – Psalm 91:11
This Bible verse tells us that God will protect us (and our children) from harm. He will send His angels to guard us and keep us safe. The Bible tells us that we should never fear because God is with us always. He will never leave us or forsake us. When we are feeling lost or alone, we can always turn to God for comfort and guidance.
We can trust Him to protect our children, just as He protects all of His children. When we surrender our lives to Him, we can rest assured that He will take care of us and keep us safe from harm.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. – Proverbs 22:6
The Bible doesn’t absolve us of our responsibility to protect a child either. This verse is telling us that if we want our children to grow up to be good people, we need to start teaching them how to be good when they are young. The Bible has a lot to say about protecting children and making sure they are raised in a safe and loving environment.
If you are a parent or guardian, it is your responsibility to make sure your children are raised in a way that will allow them to grow up to be happy and successful adults. Allowing them to walk the path of God.
