Prayer and preschoolers

Re: Verse reading – Luke 18:9-17 (day one) 
Our scripture this week is about prayer and preschoolers.  Luke puts these two stories together.  Same lesson.  God’s help moves toward humility.  Ego= problem.  To be a sinner and know it (and be humbled by the failure) is actually a better position than to be a respectable person trapped in pride.  The story of the children illustrates the same truth.  No one in ancient society had less standing than a child.  No disqualification, this native, intuitive humility gave a child special advantage in the eyes of Christ.  Maybe coincidence.  Maybe not.  This weekend our search team will recommend a candidate to become FBC’s Minister to Preschool and Children. Welcome Jimmy Gunn!  (and Ashley and Ezekiel)  A huge step forward in the “Next Gen” strategy approved last spring.  My prayer?   As we think seriously about what/how we will teach children, we also think about what they can teach us.  If my people will humble themselves. . .
