What I learned at Holiday Club

Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
Luke 18:16-17

Holiday Club 2009 finished up on Sunday. Here’s what I learned this year.

Children listen.

I mean really listen.

We quizzed them twice every day on the talks and stories, and found it almost impossible to find a question they could not answer.

What would church be like, if people listened like that? If people had that level of desire to learn about the Lord, and to listen for His voice? One of the great discouragements that preachers face is pouring out their lives for a 30 minute message, and finding many people don’t really listen- often because they just can’t be bothered.

Lord, grant us the listening ears of little children when it comes to your Word,
