  • Children don’t only want parents who are close to them. Children want parents who are close to each other.
  • Jesus loves a loving family!
  • Moses’ temporary provision for divorce isn’t God’s norm; it is proof of humankind’s sin. God’s intention for marriage is revealed in the very beginning.
  • We need to rethink this difficult passage in terms of the Spirit, rather than the letter of the Law.
  • We continue to ask, “Is divorce legally permissible?” when we should be asking, “Is it God’s intention?”
  • Jesus wants children to be seen as people who are important in the Kingdom of God and not just a bother or people “to be”.
  • Children are curious people who want to learn and grow. Children need help along the way. What better arrangement could there be then for parents or grandparents and the church to partner together to lead them to follow Jesus, the Savior.
