Suffer the Little Children

I am rather passionate about several and dessert, history, teaching and children's ministry. If you want to see me rather hot under the collar, marginalize children or children's ministry. I'm telling you, I will give you an earful.

How is it that Jesus Christ loved children, yet His people often treat them and those who minister to them, as trivial? Not very important? Second rate?

Suffer the little children to come unto Me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of heaven...

The topic Misty gave her contributors this month was Ministering to Children. I prayed about what to write, and when I sat down, this is what poured out. (actually, what I told Misty when I sent it over  was that it kind of splatted out) It is a post written totally from my heart, and I cried when writing it. Emily Freeman asked the attendees at the Influence Conference last fall, "what makes you cry?" Well, this topic does. It's my passion. It's my heart. Please follow this link over to Simply Helping Him and read my heart.
