Last week I watched my friend's school age children because they had their mid-winter break. I witnessed a sad and eye opening fact of our kids in today's churches.
My 2 year old has a stuffed animal that sings "Jesus love me this I know, for the Bible tells me so..." (and so on), when you press the button on his tummy.
Well the kids pressed the button and the kids stopped to listen. Then one child said to her brother, "What movie is that from?" And they were racking their brain to think of where they had heard that song! I was bumbfounded! What? These kids have been going to church for the 8 to 13 years they have been alive and they don't know the song Jesus Loves Me? I was sick.
SING TO YOUR CHILDREN! Sing to them simple Sunday school songs! Sing to them old hymns of the faith! Sing to them modern day worship music. Sing unto the Lord!!!!
If you teach a sunday school class, SING JESUS LOVES ME! If you don't teach them who will?
