Give them an example to follow

This marks my 400th post on Dancing with God so I thought I would go a little lighter. Each week in church we pause for a few minutes to talk with the children about God in worship. We invite them to come down front and I ask them a few questions and then share a little story that reflects God's love.

Sometimes you wonder if they are listening or if they really get anything out of it. Well this cute video suggests that some of them do.

The truth is that children watch us and learn from us. It isn't so much what we say, but rather what we do. That makes it all the more important to be loving, caring people who reach out and share the Gospel in tangible ways. That will make a much greater impact on our children than just telling them to be good and to love God and their neighbors.
