Dr. Wess Stafford “Deep down, I have come to the conclusion that the reason (children) are such a low priority to the great human institutions that seek to control this world, both secular and Christian, is that an invisible battle, a spiritual war, rages over each and every child. It is above us and beyond us and engages the full fury of the hosts of both heaven and hell. Children may be ignored by government, church, and mission – but not by Satan or God Almighty.” ~ Dr. Wess Stafford F.W. Boreham “We fancy that God can only manage His world by big battalions abroad, when all the while He is doing it by beautiful babies at home. When a wrong wants righting, or a work wants doing, or truth wants preaching, or a continent wants opening, God sends a baby into the world to do it." ~ F.W. Boreham D. L. Moody “It is a masterpiece of the devil to make us believe that children cannot understand religion. Would Christ have made a child the standard of faith if He had known that it was not capable of understanding His Words?" ~ D. L. Moody Frederick Douglass "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." ~ Frederick Douglass Charlotte Mason “The habits of the child produce the character of the man, because certain mental habitudes once set up, their nature is to go on for ever unless they should be displaced by other habits.” ~ Charlotte Mason Matthew 19:14 "...Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them for of such is the kingdom of heaven.'" Matthew 19:14 Dietrich Bonhoeffer “It is from God that parents receive their children, and it is to God that they should lead them.” ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer Dr. Wess Stafford “If God places a child before you, and you are too busy to wield either a positive or negative influence... you just did the latter! You communicated that the child doesn't matter and isn't important.” ~ Dr. Wess Stafford David Livingstone "If a commission by an earthly king is considered an honor, how can a commission by a Heavenly King be considered a sacrifice?" ~ David Livingstone D. L. Moody "If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God." ~ D. L. Moody Dr. Wess Stafford “Every child you encounter is a divine appointment.” ~ Dr. Wess Stafford Chuck Swindoll “Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.” ~ Chuck Swindoll Abraham Lincoln “The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” ~ Abraham Lincoln C.H. Spurgeon “The teachings of our childhood leave clean-cut and sharp impressions upon the mind, which remain after seventy years have passed. Let us see that such impressions are made for the highest ends.” ~ C.H. Spurgeon Clovis G. Chappell “We will never bring in the Kingdom by simply seeking to save an adult generation. We must give God a chance at the children or the cause of righteousness is going to be defeated. But if we will save the child, we will surely save the world.” ~ Clovis G. Chappell C.H. Spurgeon “It is ours to make doctrine simple; this is to be a main part of our work. Teach the little ones the whole truth and nothing but the truth, for instruction is the great need of the child’s nature.” ~ C.H. Spurgeon Unknown “Intimacy with God will always be found in a fresh, living relationship with the Father. That relationship necessitates that we have a time and place to regularly and consistently meet with Him.” ~ Unknown Dr. Wess Stafford “Just know this: what you will do among children is as close to the heart of God and central to His kingdom as anything we could mention.” ~ Dr. Wess Stafford John Flavel "If you neglect to instruct your children in the way of holiness, will the devil neglect to instruct them in the way of wickedness? No; if you will not teach them to pray, he will to curse, swear, and lie; if ground be uncultivated, weeds will spring." ~ John Flavel Dr. Forest Witcraft "Someone cried, 'Where must the seed be sown to bring the most fruit when it is grown?' The Master heard as He said and smiled, 'Go plant it for Me in the heart of a child.'" ~ Unknown Unknown “If you want your ideas to last for years, write them on paper. If you want them to last for decades, write them on brick. If you want them to last for centuries, write them on stone. If you want your ideas to last forever, write them on the heart of a child.” ~ Unknown
