Route 161

We played ball on that front lawn with the neighborhood kids. The field was probably 30 feet by 40 feet in size. Sticks were used as the bases and the highway was a homerun hit. I don’t know why no one got hit by a car, nor why the adults didn’t say be careful of the road. It was just one of the things we did as kids and it was great. What does the Bible say about children? Glad you asked.

Psalm 127:3-5 

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Matthew 19:14 

But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”


Try to keep them safe, but let them be children.

Give it some thought.
