Excuses, Excuses, Excuses!

You know we make all kinds of excuses to not learn for ourselves, or teach our children certain aspects we may consider too difficult. We don’t have the time, and think they don’t have the ability. What a sad place to be especially when confronted with the reality that children likely have more ability to understand and learn than we give them credit for, and we should be making the time to continue learning and improving our own lives.

I recently had a friend, Rebecca Lowe send me the following video to consider using for a sermon illustration. Those who know me know I can be long winded at times. Well this is a time that isn’t going to happen. Just think about the challenge I have given above, and watch the videos below.

Click on the video below to see the amazing ability of a small child, listen to the words, and realize, if she can learn this, what more can we either learn for ourselves, or teach others. If the video don't appear, click on the links. Make sure to read the few comments related to this I make after the videos.

Amazing Grace

For God So Loved The World In Mandarin Chinese

I realize some may see more in this then we should, for me, I just see a little girl, being taken to church, and learning some songs that will stick with her for the rest of her life. If we could all do the same, go to church, learn some songs, and Biblical concepts that will stick with us for the rest of our life.
