The Children's Bread : Short Sermons to Children (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Children's Bread: Short Sermons to Children His Coming, you can all go about on errands for Jesus. When you see a schoolmate In trouble, crying, perhaps, and miserable; and when, instead of laughing at him, you go and say a kind word to him, and make him forget his sorrow, then you are doing an errand for Jesus. When you went to see the sick child who lives in your street, and Offered to sit and read to her, you were going on an errand for Jesus. When you saw some cruel boys throwing stones at the frogs in the village pond, and when you stopped their cruel sport, you were doing an errand for Jesus, for He Himself says, In that ye have done it unto the least of these, ye have done it unto me. Every child, as well as every man and woman, has an errand to do for Jesus. And now I want you to think of something else. We have talked about the waiting-room at the railway station, let us think about the railway itself. You have all seen the trains running upon it, and most of you have travelled on it yourselves. Well, I like to get a sermon out of everything, and I believe this railway can give us a sermon. You know that the trains have a certain line of rails to run upon, and if they get off' the line all is confusion, and misery, and death. Now you and I have a line to travel on through life, that is, the line of did}, which is laid down for us by God Him self. If we get Off that line, if we neglect our duty, Or do what we know to be wrong, we are sum. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
