Reason to SMILE #284: SPROUTING OF THE SEED
“Mrs. Karen, do we get another memory verse tonight?” one of the kids asked.
“Next week we’ll have a new one but not tonight,” I replied.
Two kids asked that question as we finished our Wednesday night activities. Both responded with the same disappointed groan. I was thrilled! No, not that they were disappointed – well, actually, yes, that they were disappointed! For their disappointment over not receiving a new memory verse was a clear indication of their desire to know God’s Word! Woohoo! How cool is that!
This may not excite you as much as it does me but knowing I played a small part in developing a child’s desire for God’s Word gives me a SMILE that I will carry for a lifetime!
