What’s your favorite toy?

Is it a learning toy like a computer game?   Is it a truck, car, or airplane that you can pretend you are driving or flying?  Maybe it is a doll or stuffed animal, a family of action figures can also give you lots of ideas and creativity.    Using toys to produce stories in your mind is fun.  In front of the house, we lived in when I was a child was a really cool dirt road that we took a stick and drew a whole village of houses in the dirt.  Of course, when cars came down the road they drove over our houses, but we enjoyed the creation of those houses for hours before that happened.

Do you share your toys with others?  Will you let your brothers and sisters play with them or your friends play with them?  It is hard sometimes to trust others with our treasured toys, especially our favorite ones.  All of us have to learn to share the things we love.  We may share them only at our own house so we can watch over them.  We may only let certain people play with them.  But each of us needs to be able to trust others with what we hold close to our hearts.

We, adults, have to make the same decisions about our personal things too.  We have to learn who we can trust with our most precious treasures.  Did you know God has to do the same thing?  You are His most precious treasure.  He loves the children in the world.  He loves you so very much.

15 One day some parents brought their little children to Jesus so he could touch and bless them. But when the disciples saw this, they scolded the parents for bothering him.  16 Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. 17 I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”

11 Children, come and listen to me;
    I will teach you to respect the Lord.

Children are a gift from the Lord,
    a reward from a mother’s womb.
