Mrs. Who?

by Arlene Allen

Years ago when I was working as a church secretary, the sound of children's scampering feet and suppressed giggles prompted me to leave my desk to investigate.

It was summer and some neighborhood children had come into the church looking for a cool drink of water. After getting their drinks, they thought it would be fun to play hide- and-seek in the air-conditioned sanctuary.

When I found them, I used my most serious tone to remind the youngsters that this was God's house and they could not play in it. As I herded them toward the door, I continued to scold and inform them of God's displeasure at their actions.

As they reached the door, one child turned and asked me in great seriousness, “Are you Mrs. God?”

After the children left, I couldn't help but contemplate. I wondered what Mrs. God, if there had been such a person, would have done in this case.

I visualized her sitting down with the little intruders and telling them of Christ's great love for all children. I think this imaginary woman would lovingly and patiently teach them reverence for God's house. Yes, if Mrs. God did exist, that is probably what she would have done.

Today we see “WWJD” embroidered on T-shirts. We see bookmarks, bracelets and many more items with these letters on them. WWJD—What Would Jesus Do?

It would be good for all of us to stop and ask ourselves what Jesus would do in our situation.

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these” (Mark 10:14). Children are a blessing from God. They are sensitive, pliable and open to the gospel. They are fresh and energetic with years of service to offer in the Kingdom.

What would Jesus do? Ask yourself this question often. Remember little eyes are watching you. We must set an example for them in our speech, in life, in love, in faith and purity. I challenge you today to look for ways you can make a difference in a child's life!
