I was at the library one day, and I couldn’t help but be a bit distracted by the annoyed, curt, and rude way a mother was speaking to her children. That got me thinking…. How can we expect our youth to be respectful if the adults around them do not speak to them (or each other) respectfully? It’s not going to happen. God has proved that theory already. He never speaks in a condescending, negative, sarcastic tone to any of us. He always speaks with respectful words, and dignity. Let’s all take a page out of His book, and do the same. And remember, Christ took time out of His daily doings just to interact with the children. They are a precious gift and should be treated as such.
“But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt. 19:14)
That is all…. Love, Sister Yates
