"Children Are the Best Teachers in the World!"

I was looking through the NIV Mom's Devotional Bible from Zondervan the other day and ran across something written by Mary Hollingsworth which I want to share with you . . . Tiny Teachers -

"Children are the best teachers in the world. They teach young women how to be mothers and young me how to be fathers. They teach older men and women how to be grandparents. They eve teach other children how to be brothers and sisters.

Think about all the skills children teach people. They teach moms how to be nurses and dads how to be heroes. They teach brothers and sisters how to share - toys, rooms, dreams and cookies. They even teach teachers how to teach in creative and fun ways. 

Children teach the world how to love. They teach us to look past a person's skin color right to his or her heart. They teach us how to be honest, open and innocent. And they teach us how to hug and laugh and be enthusiastic.

Children make us keep our promises because they never forget one we make. They even make us into scientists and professors by asking 'Why?' bout everything which moves ad many things which don't.

Is't it interesting while we are teaching our children to be adults, they are teaching us how to be children? That's especially important when we remember Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.' (Matthew 19:14)"

Yes, I definitely wanted to share this with you today and remind myself of this as well!!!
