Little John the Baptists

Isn't it amazing the faith that little children have? No wonder Jesus tells us to have faith like a child. Last week when Princess asked why we don't go to stores and people's houses to tell them about Jesus. I think we were talking about missionaries or something and I was telling them how we can be missionaries too. Why can't I have the faith to walk up to people or knock on their door and share with them a Savior who died for their sins?

Tonight we had one of Zach's co-workers over for dinner. After we got done eating they began asking him questions~ Do you know God? Do you have a Bible? Do you read it? I just laughed at their boldness. Of course he knows we're Christians and Zach is bold in standing up for his faith at work~ everybody knows he's a 'religious freak' as I'm sure they refer to him. But to see my children so passionate about others going to heaven...it is a feeling like no other. Now if only their mommy can acquire some of their boldness and not be such a chicken at times!

I praise God for the children He's given me, for not only do I teach them but I also learn from them.

Yep, you are right about how much we learn from our children. Sometimes homeschooling feels more like an education for ME, and they are just doing what they do naturally... learn.
Children are such a blessing from the Lord, and I join you in your prayer for boldness... for you and me too!

That is so beautiful that they are so passionate for Him! I love the simple faith of children. I too want to be more bold in sharing Him with others. Blessings, dear friend.
