Preschoolers + Big Truths + God’s Gracious Will = Spiritual Understanding

Testimonies

I love this testimony from a pre-school Sunday school class:

One Sunday during the preschool Bible lesson time, the teacher was telling the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and how they were told to bow and worship the golden image made by King Nebuchadnezzar. The teacher asked the children, “Should they bow down and worship the idol?” Agitated, a three-year-old girl pointed to the wall where Bible verses the children had been encouraged to memorize were displayed. As she pointed she exclaimed, “They can’t! They can’t–because of that verse!”

What was the verse she pointed to? Matthew 6:24a“No one can serve two masters,”

May we never underestimate the power of God’s Word and the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts of little children!

… “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.”  (Luke 10:21 ESV)
