A little child shall lead them

"During the Galilean ministry of our Lord and Savior, the disciples came unto Him, saying,
“Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
“And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
“And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
“Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
“And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me."
I ended up coming to Sacrament meeting a half hour late because Emersyn was still napping when it was time to leave for church. I am not a big fan of waking babies up an hour in to a nap!
So, when we got there it was just about time for testimonies to start.
I guess Ben had been "urging" the kids to all take a turn sharing their testimony.
Logan said he wanted to go up.
Ben took him up to the stand to sit and wait their turn.
Ben told me ( later) that when Logan sat down to wait he told Ben
" I want to sit down here and prepare"!
SO precious!
Logan say's the cutest "one liners" all the time!
Once he got up to the microphone he started to say " Heavenly Father" so, I think he thought he was supposed to say a prayer.
When Ben tried to help him he said, " no I don't need help" and then he got a little bit of attitude and said, " I don't want to do it".
Ben shared his testimony and then they came and sat down.
I was SO proud of Logan to even walk up there and stand at the microphone. He was very brave.
It reminded me of how each of us are to "be as little children". I never doubt why our Heavenly Father wants us to be as they are.
