Sometimes people think kids aren’t that important, but Jesus had something else to say about that.
Have you ever felt that being a kid stinks? You can’t drive yourself to McDonald’s, you have to do homework, and you have to go to bed early. Well, in this lesson, we’re going to learn that it’s great to be a kid. In fact, Jesus made a point to say how important kids are to him. One day, Jesus was walking around talking to people when some parents showed up with their kids. They wanted Jesus to pray for them. The disciples tried to push the parents away saying that Jesus didn’t have time for kids. Jesus heard what was happening and told his disciples to stop. Jesus said that kids are great and that he likes their attitude better than adults. Wow! Jesus was saying kids are important, not just adults. And, Jesus was praising the attitude of kids as being better than that of adults. Here’s what that means. Jesus was saying that kids don’t think they have it all figured out. They know they need help and guidance. Adults sometimes think that they’re smart enough to do things on their own. Jesus doesn’t like that attitude. So kids, be glad to be a kid and know that Jesus loves you and thinks you’re very important!
