What He taught me this year was that children can understand Him and His ways in a much deeper way than I ever thought was possible. We had "assembly" each morning where the kindegarten through 4th grade gathered together to have worship time. The gal who leads this time is in her late 50's and is a genious in the way she interacts with the children. She talks to them emotionally as children, but treats them spiritually as mature and expects them to hear from the Lord just as an adult would.
My favorite time would be when the children were invited to come up to the microphone if they had a love song of adoration to sing to the Lord. The sweetness of their little voices as they would sing things like "Jesus, you are my righteousness" or "God, thank you for being my Shepard" or "You are my Shield oh Lord" or "You are my Rock" would make me see Jesus in a whole new light. These kids didn't just make up these descriptions of Jesus...they heard them from their parents and from their leaders at school and church. They listened as they sat in on worship services. They responded when they were given the chance to sing their own song to the Lord. They actually experienced Jesus in these ways.
You will be so blessed as you see your kids grow in their love for the Lord. Their prayers will touch you in the deepest place of your heart. We want as parents to breathe life into our kid's relationships with God. This, afterall, is the most powerful task you will ever perform as a parent.
What a blessing.
