Helping Children Come To Jesus

By Andrew Murray 

    “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). 

    Christian parents are appointed as guardians, to watch and foster a child’s growth.  We must remember that the tender plant needs unceasing watching, and that only in the congenial atmosphere of a home holy to the Lord, and wholly dedi­cated to His service, can we count on its ripening fruit to eternal life.  Let, in your education, Jesus and the coming to Him to be saved from sin, to have the heart sanctified and satisfied, be your chief end.  Let the warmth of your love to Jesus, your holy example of obedience, your teaching and praying – in one word, your whole living – be a daily help to the child to see Jesus, to live with Him, and to long for Him.  Jesus Christ is meant to be our ­everyday friend, our every hour companion.  Let all the wondrous influence you possess in forming your child and fixing his destiny be wielded for this one thing – to satisfy the desire of the Savior’s heart, and make your child wholly His.
