â€śYes, my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, I remember all things.â€ť answered the Father.
â€śThe man and woman who made the deadly error in the garden would have never thought of resting every seventh day. The children of men do not like being still much either, so a day of rest and learning about heaven is very good for them.â€ť stated the Son.
â€śAmen Son, the seventh day is blessed for all the children of men who keep it holy.â€ť Spoke the Father.
â€śDonâ€™t you love that song they sing in Sunday school?â€ť asked the Son.
â€śYou mean the one about how I love all the children of the world, and how precious they are in my sight?â€ť Asked the Father.
â€śYes, that one.â€ť
â€śYes, I do. It is not hard for the children of men to believe that we love them, if they are taught about us when they are young. Thatâ€™s why I gave them Sunday school teachers! Blessed and happy are the parents that send their children to Sunday school.â€ť Proclaimed the Father.
â€śChildren are so receptive, they havenâ€™t spent much time in the world. But they do tend to be fidgety in Sunday school, and that attention span of theirs can be a real problem for the teachers you gave them down there.â€ť said the Son.
â€śI am aware of that my Son. The parents also struggle getting the children off to Sunday school. The enemy is always trying to cause them problems when they are trying to get ready to go to church. That snake hates Sunday school. The enemy has learned that when children are trained up in the way they should go while theyâ€™re young, he has a much tougher time misleading them when they are older. The parents need to be assured that itâ€™s well worth the fight to get them to church.â€ť spoke the Father.
Jesus then turned and said, â€śLook Zacchaeus, that class is learning about the time I went into Jericho and you wanted to see who I was. You were so little; you couldnâ€™t see me for all the people that were around me. You climbed right up that sycamore tree to get a better look. You didnâ€™t realize that I could see you, and when I looked up and said Zacchaeus, hurry up and come down, for Iâ€™m coming to your house today, you climbed out of that tree fast as lightning.â€ť recalled the Son.
â€śChildren like that story donâ€™t they Jesus?â€ť asked Zacchaeus.
â€śYes they do, Zacchaeus, and so do I. The crosses they make when theyâ€™re learning about salvation are also very nice. Those little ones are so creative. They got that from our Father you know.â€ť the Son said.
â€śThe angels are most intrigued by the story of salvation, Jesus.â€ť Take a look at little Joey.â€ť Instructed the Father.
A head was bowed, and a little one was kneeling down. With a sincere heart and a gentle voice, the Father and the Son heard the little boy pray this prayer, â€śDear Jesus, I believe that you died for my sins, please come into my heart and save me, thank you. Amen.
There was great joy in heaven.
â€śThere go all of the angels again. They always celebrate when they hear that prayer!â€ť remarked the Son.
â€śOh how I love Sunday school.â€ť Said the Father.
â€śSo do I.â€ť replied the Son.
