Children: Assignment 12

Explain 🙂

Matthew 11:25-27

25At that time Jesus said, “I praise you Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.  26Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.  27All things have been committed to Me by my Father.  No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him.

                Matthew 13:11

                11He replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you,      but not to them.

                1 Corinthians 1:26-29

                26Brothers think of what you were when you were called.  Not many of you were wise by              human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.  27But God chose           the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to               shame the strong.  28He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things– and the             things that are not– to nullify the things that are, 29so that no one may boast before Him.

Common question: The bible is so old and it’s just a bunch of words, what does this have to do with me?  Why can’t I understand what it says and why is it so important?

Have you ever been amazed at what kids say?  This is not an accident, but children are blessed to be wiser than adults and we blow them off but sometimes it’s the truth.  If you are not saved then none of what I’m doing is going to make sense at all to you.  In fact if you’ve come this far with me it’s because God is speaking to you through these verses.  They are just random verses that refer to children that I picked out from the index but if you’re either starting new with this set or following every post I make then you’re either already a Christian and you crave the word of God or God is trying to speak to you through these verses.  These verses explain that there is a shroud over your eyes to where you don’t understand the word of God.  Take that leap and open your heart to God so that you can find joy in them.
