Sponges Absorb Everything 170

Two Sided Friendship

ChildrenAny friendship is two sided. In the Sunday school environment, there are the child's reaction to his or her elder and the teacher's influence over the pupil. Both are equally important. At the very best, we have children who are like sponges that absorb everything that they are taught. Children are different in God's eyes. Jesus told adults in Mark 10.15 "Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." Unless adults became like children who are childlike but not childish they will never enter the Kingdom of God. Little ones have special qualities that make them precious in God's sight. Someone once said, "Children are like sponges. They absorb all your strength and leave you limp. But give them a squeeze and you get it all back."
