Why Kid’s Voices Matter
Q&A: Sarah and Lilly
Sarah: Why do you think kids are afraid to say how they feel?
Lilly: They are embarrassed to say what they were going to say or felt like they could not say it.
Sarah: Let me share this verse with you. It’s 1 Timothy 4:12 and it says, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. What do you think 1 Timothy 4:12 means?
Lilly: I think that means that kids are not too young to talk
Sarah: Yeah! Because I think everyone has something special to share. How can you encourage kids to use their voice?
Lilly: By not being afraid and to speak up.
Sarah: Love that! Do you think it’s OK to have a different opinion?
Lilly: Yes you can, because we all think differently.
Sarah: So how can kids make a difference today?
Lilly: They can make a difference today by being obedient and listening.
Sarah: Such a good point! I love that! I was thinking, what are some ways you are making a difference?
Lilly: I wear a mask when I go walking outside so I help others not to get sick and stay healthy.
Sarah: That’s so important! And I think I you are making a difference using your gifts and talents to write here at Marked Ministry! Right?
