By Rev. Dean
little children to come then unto me”
It’s more than a
commandment it’s something like a plea.
For to the heart
of children there is a special key.
The key is love
and kindness and this is plain to see.
When we were all
yet children, the door swung easily.
But time and sin
can cause it not to swing so free.
The Lord spoke
very clearly of entering as a child.
Their faith has
not been shattered. Their life not yet defiled.
Sure we are all
born sinners, of that God’s word is clear.
So teach them
God’s word early and early they will hear.
If it is your
purpose to bring men unto God,
Then start when
they are children, before sin’s path they’ve trod.
A child’s soul is
eternal, just as any man’s.
So treat it very
carefully with tender loving hands.
‘Twould be better
that a millstone were hung around our neck.
Than we, by
foolish actions should cause a child to wreck.
