But what Jay and I figure... it's about relationships. Relationships with people in our church. Relationships with people who are seeking the Lord. Relationships with our children. Teaching them to be hospitable. Teaching them to share what we have. Teaching them to love others where they are in life.
Most if not all the people that come to our small group are thoroughly entertained by our children! Whether the children are giving everyone hugs good night, just popping their head in to say "hi!", trying to stay up later, showing them their karate/dancing moves, wanting to take pictures of them while they are coming in.... or even asking to see the treats that the group will be eating... and asking if they could save a couple for them to eat the next day!
