1-year-old Ava couldn’t take her eyes off the praise team as the music part of our worship started. She was seated on her grandmother’s lap on the front row, but she managed to wiggle her way to the floor and take a couple of steps toward the platform. She seemed to comprehend that something very important was taking place.
After the worship service was over, Tate, 2-and-a-half, showed interest in the drum set on stage. With permission of the praise team and his parents, Tate gave us a memorable drum solo! People filing out of the worship center left with smiles on their faces as the sounds of the drums permeated the room. When it was time to go home, Tate had to be literally dragged away from the drum set.
Humans seem to be designed to worship. Colossians 1:16 says, “…All things were created by him and for him.” Even small children instinctively know that there is a higher Power that we are to honor and praise.
It is our duty to help them come to a better understanding of God and how he is to be worshiped.
Proverbs 22:6—“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
