fellowship in relating

.













A comment from my Thursday post:

“When I taught
toddlers
in Sunday School,
I spent most
of my time
on my knees,
at their level.”

~by Glynn Young

Glynn also said …

“It’s true on two levels.

When parents brought their kids to the class, I would meet them at the door on my knees – toddler level. Shy or frightened children could more easily deal with an adult who was as tall as they were. And then all the teaching was down in a kneeling or sitting position. The only time I’d be standing would be for outside play.

The second level was for prayer about teaching them.”

As for me…

When i read the comment, the thought about being on one’s knees and getting to the level of a child came through pretty strong.  I speaks to me of a position, a mind set, and a way of heart in connection and relating with and in the Lord.
And when i really think of the way that we are lifted in fellowship and relationship with others, and just how much the Lord is with us in it, i am in awe.
