Children are a delight from the Lord. This is true even when they prove to be a challenge. For it is then we have the privilege of showing Christ’s character to them in the face of whatever they may toss our way. But take heart! To the measure we take on the attitude of Jesus, he in turn will strengthen us and speak into the hearts of little ones. They are watching our responses both spoken and non-verbal. Our lives speak volumes to them. What a responsibility! But what a privilege. Children are small wonders with a big impact. Truly we are blessed to nurture them in our homes and in our faith communities.
