What Lesson Do They Learn

When I worked in the Children’s Ministry I would pray over what I was to teach them, for a time I wrote my own lessons plan and also wanted them to know that they all had valued, but honestly they taught me far more than I could ever teach them.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these.

George Washingtom Carver

What lessons do they learn

In the little moments

Where no words are said

But a gentle gesture of love is shown?

What lessons do they learn

When we speak of Jesus

Not in a distant way

But as an Abba Daddy

For the children

Who are foreign to

Hugs from a Daddy?

What lesson do they learn

When we feed them not

Only in the body

But in the Spirit

With words

Of love and encouagement?

What lessons do

We teach

When we listen to Bible Stories

By Children

Mixed with Superman

And Spiderman stories?

What lessons do we teach

When we show in actions

Of love

And try to live

As Christ lived

But at the same time

Letting them know that

Mistakes are okay

And can be forgiven?
