“Why did you choose to work in kid’s ministry?” Well, the first, and most obvious reason, is that I adore kids! However, my reasoning goes much further than that. The hearts of children are so innocent and pure, and I love seeing them come to know Jesus.
I love how, in the Bible, children mean so much to Jesus. You rarely see Him target specific groups, but numerous times, Jesus called the kids to Himself. I think this resonates so much with me, because I love how children love wholeheartedly. I always envision a beautiful picture of children gathered around Jesus, with huge grins on their faces, just in awe of His presence.
I get inspiration from the children, and am always learning something from them. Sometimes, I look at them and think about how wonderful it is to love with no strings attached like they do… which is something I think we can all learn from.
Children are the next generation, and I find it so important that we love on them and grow them up in truth. I never could have picked a more rewarding area of ministry!
