What do these bible verses teach us about God's view of babies?
Though there are not a lot of Bible verses about babies, there are enough to get an idea about how God feels about them. Some of the Scripture passages above tell us that it is God who forms babies in the womb and that they are a blessing to mankind. Even God's Son Jesus came into the world as a baby.
We also find mention of the great joy that comes to the mother and others when a new baby comes into the world. In some of the scripture about babies we see that God even wanted babies to be there during worship, and that Jesus said there were angels that looked after them.
We can also learn a lot from what the Bible does not say about babies. There is not even one passage in the entire Bible that mentions a baby or young child going to hell.
