Beatitudes for Children's Workers
Blessed are they who love children with all their heart, for they shall be rewarded with big smiles.
Blessed are they who have planned and prepared, for the children will be interested and pay attention.
Blessed are they that arrive early, for they shall be able to welcome the children have time to talk to them rather than rushing to get things in place.
Blessed are they that get to know the children, their children's parents, and the children's home situation; for they shall be able to minister more effectively.
Blessed are they who respect each child's personality and seek to meet that child on his or her own level of understanding, for young lives shall reap benefits from these efforts in years to come.
Blessed are they who bear witness to children week after week, for they shall see boys and girls grow in knowledge and love of God.
Blessed are they who spend time alone with God each day, for they shall grow spiritually and the Lord will use them as His instruments.
Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for the Lord will honour your commitment and give you pleasure and satisfaction in your ministry to children.
Two Little Boys ~
After a hardy rainstorm filled all the potholes in the streets and alleys, a young mother watched her two little boys playing in the puddle through her kitchen window.
The older of the two, a five year old lad, grabbed his sibling by the back of his head and shoved his face into the water hole.
As the boy recovered and stood laughing and dripping, the mother runs to the yard in a panic.
Why on earth did you do that to your little brother?!' she asks as she shook the older boy in anger.
'We were just playing 'church' mommy, ' he said.
'And I was just baptizing him..... In the name of the Father, the Son and in...the hole-he-goes.'
"Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you." Mother Teresa
