When One Teaches, Two Learn

Wisdom Wednesdays: Listen Earnestly

I read this quote to my staff of VBS volunteers this summer during our prayer time before the first session.  I had stumbled across it earlier in the summer and was so struck by its simple, yet powerful, truth.  So often we as adults become wrapped up in the things that we deem important, rushing through our schedule to squeeze it all in, and forget that what children have to share, however seemingly insignificant, is important.  No, the story about the time that five-year-old in your Sunday school class saw a frog down by the creek probably isn’t relevant to what you are trying to teach, but to that little mind it is the most exciting event of the entire week.  You certainly can’t be expected to let every side story derail your ability to teach a lesson, but it is worth remembering how important the “little stuff” can be to the children in our ministries.
