Whenever I listened to the song,“ Let the little children come” by Steve Green, I am reminded of the scene when little children were brought to Jesus for blessings while he was speaking to a crowd of people. The disciples thought that the children were bothering Jesus and so they tried to stop the children from coming near. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these”. And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them (Mark 10:13-14). Jesus regarded the children as special and was pleased to bless them.
The Lord is pleased to save and heal children
The Bible recorded several instances when Jesus interacted with children and treated them with love. In John 4: 46-52, Jesus healed an official’s son. In Luke 8: 40-56, Jesus raised a dead girl and other incidents as well. According to these passages, Jesus loved these children and took time to bless them individually. He performed miracles to heal and save them.
God wants us to teach our children when they are young
Jesus regarded little children as precious and most vulnerable. It is important that we ought to teach our children what our Father has taught us through His word. We have to start early during their childhood so that they can learn the truth and be guided to walk the right way in Christ. (Proverbs 22:6) “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Parents ought to bring their children to God and nurture them and train them up about God’s way.
Vision for BCK
In line with the guiding philosophy of (Proverbs 22:6), we want to serve the community by providing good kindergarten programme to reach out to children around us. We conduct worship service for our little ones every morning, to sing and to praise God and to start their learning for the day. The teachers are their role models showering them with love and care as they learn and grow in God’s protection and blessing. Our home visitations also allow us to interact with their family and be connected with the parents.
May God bless BCK as we bear His witness and be a blessing to all the children when they are with BCK.
