How precious are the souls of children! For some reason, many of us mistakenly believe that working with children is somehow less important than working with adults. But in Matthew 19:13-15, we read the beautiful story of Jesus’s interest in the little children. They were worthy of His time and they should be worthy of ours. This song by Michael Card, written about that passage, touched my heart when I heard it the other day. Oh, how precious are the children! And oh, how right Michael Card is when he wrote the line: The springtime of their life decides the adults they’ll become.
What a privilege it is to serve children. I thank God for godly teachers and Sunday School teachers and mentors. God has used so many of them to change lives. May God bless them!
LET THE CHILDREN COMEThe springtime of their life decides the adults they’ll become So let the children come Please let the children come The golden gift of childhood Lasts a lifetime if you try The simple trusting faith they hold Keeps scholars mystified And so the Lord adopts us As His daughters and His sons For the Kingdom is for Children So please let the children come Let the Children Come Don’t dare drive them away And then the kingdom comes Hear the holy, foolish things they say The springtime of their life decides the adults they’ll become So let the children come Please let the children come
