The Little Ones

Sometimes finding a way to serve is easier than other times. Today was one of those times. The theme for today with LIGHTtheWORLD was: "Jesus Ministered to Children and So Can You." Jeremy and I happen to teach children (4-5 year olds) at our church. Today, though, we had a special meeting and didn't hold our regular classes. So we didn't see those kids today. We wanted them to know we were thinking of them and in preparation had asked them what kind of balloon animals they liked.

As a family we were able to deliver quite a few of them today and hope to get the rest out soon. Christ taught by example- not everyone followed his example, but he never wavered. The best way to teach children (ours or others) is through example. A kind word, a talent shared, comfort given. Not all children will choose to follow that example, but like Christ, try to keep from wavering... or they will latch on to that bad example quicker than the olives disappear on Thanksgiving!
