Bring Little Ones to Jesus
With great anticipation, the young couple looked forward to the birth of their first child and prayed that he would come to know the Lord at a young age. The day their son was born, the new father took the baby in his arms and told him the Gospel story.
One day, when he was about three-years-old, the little boy was outside playing and disobeyed his mom. As she lovingly corrected him, he told her, “Mommy, my heart hurts.” She recognized that it was the Holy Spirit convicting him of his sin, so she took the opportunity to explain how Jesus died to pay for the sins of the whole world and how each one of us needs Him to be our Savior. Thinking he was too young to really understand, she “planted some seeds” about salvation, but left it at that.
