Welcome the Little Children
Overseer Sung-Hyun Kim
is the eternal Father.
is the Father of humanity and He is love (1 Jn 4:8).
Although those who became God’s children betray Him,
He is patient and waits for them like the prodigal son (Lk 15:19-20).
Although little children are burdensome and helpless,
they are seeds of heaven. So do not stop the little children
but bless them again and again and make them grow.
Little children become adults and adults grow old (1 Sam 2:26),
just like a good tree grows
and you expect its fruit.
Samuel prayed since he was a young child (1 Sam 3:3-6).
God used him in a great way,
and Jesus examined God’s word since His childhood (Lk 2:41-47).
Jesus is the Word, but He learned the teaching of the Prophets.
The whole church should understand that children will become great workers,
so they should be brought up in truth and grace.
The national strength for each country is in the children,
and the church’s future is also in the children.
Therefore, Jesus blessed the children again and again (Mk 10:16).
○ The whole church should become a model for little children.
Little children always grow by learning from adults.
You can see a family’s faith when you look at their children.
○ Adults should all become mirrors for little children
and teach them wisdom to live in the world,
but they should also teach the way to live in spiritual heaven.
○ People who receive God’s grace have love inside them,
and this love is for all and not for one person.
Bring up little children by the truth.
※ The whole church should be teachers with maternal instincts,
nurture the children’s spirits,
and guide them so they can become admirable believers.
