Ecclesiastes 12:1 (KJV) states: “Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, ‘I have no pleasure in them.'” A child who gives their heart and life to Jesus has a lifetime to serve their Lord. Children are characterized by simplicity, profound trustfulness, and honesty. A person must have these same qualities to come to Jesus and be converted.  To be converted means to turn around. You are going in the wrong direction and you must begin to go in the right direction. Jesus told the disciples that they must humble themselves as a child and turn from their sins. Sin is to err, to do wrong when you know to do right. The Bible says in Romans 3:23 that we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God. Did you know that 85% of the people who are ever saved are saved between the ages of 4-14? It is important for parents to bring their children to faith in Jesus while they are young. The human heart gets more calloused and harder as a person ages. The heart of a child is sensitive and tender and trusting. The Lord designed their heart this way so they can receive correct teaching at a young age. They are more open to receiving Jesus into their heart now than they will be in the next 5-10 years. Did you know that great men of the Word of God such as Matthew Henry, Jonathan Edwards, and Isaac Watts were all saved by the age of ten?
