A Child’s Wisdom

Do you really have a life? If you do what does it have that is important to you? God says he will give us that life. All we have to do is accept Jesus into our life. Our lives are nothing without Jesus. We can pray to God but never have Jesus with us. People say all we need is money to provide for us. No, Jesus is our money he will provide for us. Jesus died on the cross for us. He can save us. If we accept Jesus in our life we will go to heaven and be free of sin. John 3:16 says God loved the world so much he gave his one and only son and any one who believed in him will not die but have eternal life. God has a plan for us, and part of that plan is to accept Jesus and go to heaven.

My daughter, age 11, wrote this recently while we played a game of Monopoly. It is amazing, at times, the depth of understanding that children can have on a particular subject. As Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these,” (Matthew 19:21). Their minds are not filled with the garbage and baggage that fills our adult heads and I always think that’s what can make it easier for children to accept Jesus on faith and to grow faster in their faith than some of us adults. Jesus also said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children,” (Matthew 11:25). Sometimes, our children are wiser than us in matters of faith.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting

For my kids, it always seems like they’re waiting for something. Waiting for their birthday party; waiting for Christmas. Kids have such short attention spans, that it’s a miracle they can wait for anything. I thought a few pictures of them waiting fit this theme just fine. 🙂
