Children are a blessing from God. I have just finished a week leading "games" for a week at our Vacation Bible School. I was impressed by a couple things:
1. When we all work together, things really turn out so much better. The success of leadership is inspiring others to work as a team. When each member does it's part well then the "whole" project is a great success. Way to go team!
2. We can learn a lot about Jesus from children. I saw over 100 kids this week work, play, learn, worship, sing, and grow together. They cared not just for themselves, but for each other as well - "the least of these" you could say.
Jesus loves all of us but children have a special place in His heart and Kingdom. Remember the story from Matthew 10:14? They were trying keep the kids away from Jesus, and He said to them; "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
We all want to get to heaven, so maybe we can learn a lot from these little ones.
Love God with the faith of a child. Amen?
