One of the most emotional pleasures for every parent is to dress their child, I don’t know about you, but I love designing sets of accessories and clothes so that my little ones look as precious as little angels come down from heaven. The Bible tells us in Proverbs 22.6 “Train up the child in his way, and even when he is old he will not depart from it.”and although this quote speaks to us primarily about the education of our children, an important part of that education has to do with the culture of their clothing.
Nowadays, many children are attracted by fictional characters, comics; and we as parents usually fall into the attempt to buy clothes, toys and decorations on it. Rarely do we see a little one represent the banner of God or carry a Word because culture has simply led us little by little to hide the figure of God from everyday things.
Sowing the seed from childhood
Now, imagine for a moment all that we can teach our little ones if they only carry a piece of clothing with a verse or message about Jesus, everything that could impact him or his companions. Children are usually a sponge that absorbs the information that we give them, their reception of things often goes unnoticed by us because we do not pay attention to the power that the Word of God teaches us, and that is that all the information that a small child receives in her early years it will be destined to mark her life in many ways. If we instruct him in his childhood, we can be sure that the seed will be present throughout his life.
Nowadays we have many beautiful and modern clothes that combine very well and that do not represent an old-fashioned look for our children. We know that what our children want is to feel comfortable, to feel loved and respected. For this reason, an article of this type can be a nice way to educate them and send them our affection. Why make our children a figure in the world when we can make them part of the altar? On Matthew 19:14 Jesus said: “Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them, because the kingdom of heaven belongs to those who are like them.”
The little priests of the house
If you have a baby who has been given to God since he was a baby, you will understand the importance of that pact, that little one has not only been consecrated to the Lord but is set apart to be a representative of Christ and in this education God is our main ally. We should not worry about how to instruct our children, God in prayer will always help us teach them and he will also be the main source of transformation for them. If our children belong to Him, we can be sure that He will also help us to fulfill His purpose in them.
Every human being has an innate need to know God, and our children are no exception. Therefore, feeding this thirst with sound doctrine from children is something that will make them grow strong in their spirit and that their dreams are well directed and focused. Our children should not feel strange for wearing a Christian garment if we as parents have been able to show them the richness of that treasure. Teaching them to value each Word and that they know and love Jesus will be essential to create a different culture in them and that they grow healthy away from any media influence that wants to plant harmful traits or behaviors in them.
And tell us, how do you like to dress your little ones?
