Simon Dewey Paintings of Christ with Children

Some of Simon’s most precious pieces depict the Savior interacting with little children. We see Christ’s tenderness and His respect for each individual child in his expression. Each painting is a reminder of Christ’s powerful teaching in the New Testament:

“But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.” - Luke 18:16-17

Clearly, children and youth have an important part to play in God’s plan. These paintings make the perfect birthday and baptism gifts to remind any individual child of God of their true identity and purpose. Each is a lovely illustration of Christ’s love for them.
