WHAT DID YOUR KIDS LEARN THIS WEEK?
Children are precious to Jesus. Amy Carmichael knew this. Jesus gave Amy her brown eyes and love for others. Jesus had a purpose for Amy. In India Amy was able to look like a native Indian because her eyes were brown and not blue like her family. Because Amy could blend in and look native, she was able to rescue many children from being sold to the temple.
In her book Lotus Buds, Amy described children as 'Little buds that float and open on the water, lifting young innocent faces up to the light... gathered.... and crushed underfoot. But the little Lotus Buds are His - His and not another's, and she consecrated herself again to gather some of those flowers and offer them to their true Owner.'
