“A little child will lead them…”

BibleSo often it seems that our children set better examples of what it means to be a follower of Christ than we seasoned Christians.

Case in point:  This month Covenant United Methodist Church (my church) gave Bibles to its third graders.  Through this spring, the children learned about the Bible and were encouraged to read it.  Guess what?  They are!

In fact one girl’s mother wrote the following about her daughter Lauren…

“So come to find out Lauren has been taking her bible to school.  I asked her when she reads it because I didn’t want it going outside at recess and getting ruined.  She said, ‘Mom I read it at silent reading time.  And now other kids are bringing their bibles to school.’

Apparently her teacher is ok with it because she showed him her bible and she said he was proud of her; well so am I!  I’ve always told her to be proud of her faith and to never hide it.”

And a little child will lead them…

    Leave it to Lauren! She is a great kid. If we could all be so bold in our faith.
