A number of years ago, a Scottish pastor stood before his congregation and resigned, saying, “In the past two years, I have seen only one conversion in this congregation: wee Bobby Moffatt. With such little fruit, I can no longer serve in this ministry.” And he walked away from the pulpit a broken man. Little did he know that wee Bobby Moffatt grew up to be Robert Moffatt, the missionary who opened the entire continent of Africa to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
If you are teaching Sunday school right now, it’s very possible that you have a “wee Bobby Moffatt” in your class. If you work with kids, realize that Jesus places a very high value on children. He says if you receive them, you receive Him.
