Bringing in the Sheep

Many Christians know the old hymn “Bringing in the Sheaves.” At Good News Club® a little girl insisted that the title was “Bringing in the Sheep.” And why not? Aren’t we the sheep of His pasture, working to bring little lambs to the Savior?

On the first day of Good News Club little Maya stared at the visual of Jesus on the cross then turned toward a teacher. The teacher asked, “You look puzzled, Maya. What do you want to know?”

Maya said, “On that picture, is that blood?”

“Well, yes,” the teacher replied. “When Jesus died on the cross, the Bible tells us He shed His blood. He was bleeding.”

“But why did He have to die?” Maya asked.

Oh, aren’t we glad that children ask questions like this! The teacher showed her from the Bible the way of salvation and Maya prayed to accept Jesus as her Savior!

At another one of our clubs a little girl tugged at a teacher’s hand and said, “I know what I want to do when I grow up.”

“What do you want to do?” asked the teacher.

She beamed. “I want to teach a Good News Club and tell other kids about Jesus!”
