Let the little children come to me.
Vince Gerhardy tells about a Sunday school teacher who introduced her little ankle biters to Psalm 23: “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. . . .” The following week she asked if anyone could quote Psalm 23. A four-and-a-half-year-old raised her hand. She faced the class, curtsied, and said, “The Lord is my shepherd, that’s all I want,” and returned to her seat.
Little Michelle’s favorite Sunday school song is, “Jesus loves me! This I know, For the Bible tells me so.” But she gives it a little spin—singing at the top of her voice: “Jesus loves me! This I know, For the Bible tells Michelle.”
Learn from these children. We miss the boat when we fail to apply the Bible personally.
We teach our children about life.
Our children teach us what life is about.
