The Children's Friend
long time ago people did not know much about God. They thought he was far
away, up in the sky where the lightning flashes and the thunder rolls.
Many of them were afraid of him. But all the while God loved them and
wanted them to know him better.
and by he sent his dear Son, Jesus, to teach people about his love. Jesus
came as a baby. After a while he grew to be a man. Then he began to show
how much his heavenly Father cared for men and women, and boys and girls.
He showed how willing his heavenly Father is to help people who are in
day some mothers brought their children to Jesus. They wanted him to speak
to them and to place his hands on their little heads in blessing. Jesus
was glad to do this. He took some of the children in his arms. Others came
near and clung to him, too. They knew that he was their Friend, and that
he loved them.
Although Jesus went back to live again with his heavenly Father, he still loves children. He still delights to have them come to him. They cannot look upon his kind face now, but he can see them. He can hear them when they pray. And because he loves them he gives them many blessings.
