A few weeks ago we were looking at the Lost Sheep. While I was sitting with a group of year 2 (age 6-7) girls, they explained to me that ‘even though I am a grown-up I was still God’s little daughter and He loves me so much!’
Their beautiful faith is so inspiring and a real testament as to why children are so important to the church family. Jesus says in Mark 10:15, ‘Unless you accept God’s kingdom in the simplicity of a child, you’ll never get in.’ (MSG)
Children don’t see the complications or the difficulties that we often feel are so important, they just see the simple truth: that Jesus loves each and every one of us, no matter what.
