Lesson 5

Am I Too Little?


It was a beautiful day. Ken Ken and Amy Amy asked Mother Mother if they could play in the park.

"Yes," Mother said, "but do not get your clothes clothes dirty. We will go to see your Grandmother today."

"We will be careful," said Amy.

Ken started walking across the board

When they reached the little creek, they saw a large board board placed across the water. Ken started walking across the board.

"I am going across on these stones stones," said Amy as she took off her shoes and socks. "It is more fun than walking across on the board."

"You better not," warned Ken. "Remember, Mother told us not to get our clothes dirty!"

"I will not get them dirty," said Amy. She started walking across the creek on the stones. Ken sat down and waited on the other side of the creek.

Amy suddenly slipped and fell into the muddy water

The creek was not very deep. The stones were close together but very slippery. When Amy reached the last stone, she suddenly slipped and fell into the muddy water!

"Oh, oh, Amy, your dress got dirty," said Ken. "What will Mother say? She told us not to get our clothes dirty."

"I know," said Amy. "I did not mean to, but my foot slipped and I fell." Amy tried to brush off the mud, but the more she brushed, the worse it looked.

When they arrived at home, Mother saw Amy's dress and shook her head. "I told you not to get your clothes dirty, Amy."

Amy looked down and said, "I am sorry, Mom. I know I did wrong and disobeyed you. Please forgive me."

"Yes, I forgive you," said Mother, "but you must learn to obey me."

Amy was quiet for a moment. Then she said, "Mom, will you please pray for me and ask the Lord Jesus Jesus to come into my heart so that I will obey you better?"

Mother took Amy on her lap

Mother took Amy on her lap and said, "I am glad that you want to ask the Lord Jesus to come into your heart, Amy, but I cannot ask Him to do that. You must ask Him yourself."

"But I thought that I was too little to ask Jesus to come into my heart. Please, Mom, tell me, am I too little?"

"No, I do not think so," said Mother.

Mother put her arms around Amy. "Let me explain something to you. The Bible Bible tells us that we are born with sin in our hearts. That is why we do wrong things, like disobeying. A small baby does not understand this. But I believe that you know when you are doing something wrong, don't you, Amy?"

Amy nodded and said, "Yes, I knew it was wrong to walk on those slippery stones today. You had just told us not to get our clothes dirty."

Mother smiled. "I am glad that you know when you do wrong. The Lord Jesus also knows about the sin in our hearts. He died on the cross for us so that we could be saved from our sins.

"When you are old enough to know that you have done wrong, then you are old enough to ask Jesus to forgive your sins and be your Savior."

Amy questioned, "But some people people say that you cannot take Jesus as your Savior until you are nine or ten years old."

Mother answered, "Yes, some people even think you have to be much older than that before you can be saved. But God tells us in the Bible that 'Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.' 'Whosoever' means anyone who wants to, even little children."

"Do you mean that I can take Jesus as my Savior right now?" asked Amy eagerly.

"Yes, you can pray right now!" said Mother.

They knelt down and Amy prayed, "Dear Lord Jesus, I am sorry for the wrong things I have done, and I want to stop doing them. Please forgive me. Thank you for loving me and for dying for me. Please come into my heart and be my Savior. I am so glad that I am not too little."

Boys and Girls,

Why not ask Him to save you right now?

You do not need to wait any longer. The Lord Jesus loves you, and He will save you if you ask Him. Why not ask Him to save you right now? Just pray to Him like this:

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I have sinned, and I am truly sorry for my sins. I thank you for loving me so much and for dying on the cross for my sins. Please come into my heart and be my Savior."
