Jesus was weird.
Seriously. He didn't host regularly scheduled holy productions or use the latest curriculum. In fact, Jesus totally ignored many of the things we believe you "need" to do to teach kids/people about God...
Stuff the Master Teacher Skipped Over...
Instead, Jesus chose to reach the hearts of His followers in the small bits of ordinary life.
Yes, Jesus spoke to massive crowds, but even when thousands gathered, he still spoke of things that impacted their individual lives. Can't you just imagine the walk home? Those Mamas and Papas would leave the gathering with their excited little ones tugging on their arms. "Papa! Did you see? He said you had to have faith like me! He pointed right at me!" and "Look, Mama! It's one of them sparrows Jesus was talking about! Can I give him my crumbs?"
What This Means For Mamas...
This means you and I can take a deep breath! It is totally possible for us to help our kids to see our King with the eyes of their hearts!
You don't have to spend hours researching the root of the historical Greek in the text. You don't have to have a degree.
You simply have to stand in awe of what's right in
front of you, and connect it to the Creator.
"For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God."
