At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. St. Matthew 18:1-3 (KJV)

Message from a 10 year old -
For God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
We should love our family, church members and neighbors. Because, in the Bible, it says to love ye one another. Today, some people are not showing love by killing, stealing and robbing - that's not love. Without love, the world would be twisted and have negative emotions on us. So, when you say you love someone, not only say it - but show it and mean it.
These are three ways I show love: I show love in my house by honoring my father and my mother. I show love in church by praising God. I show love in school by respecting teachers and friends.
How do you show love? (March 23, 2014)
Message from an 8 year old -
In this month (February), we celebrate Black history - but I think we should celebrate it everyday. Our civil rights leaders have done so much. We should show them honor. They helped us change laws like slavery and segregated schools. Now I can have friends of different races, a good education, and a good job where I can make a lot of money.
I am thankful for my family and my church for teaching me about God. When I am in trouble, I have learned how to pray. I should not be afraid because I have the strength of God in me no matter what people say. I am proud of who I am and I know I am a child of God.
