A Child Was Bored in the Service

I’ve been saying this for a long time!

We shall be ill-equipped for living if we do not come armed and trained to be bored much of the time.

When children have been taught to sit still at home, and hear the word of God read each day, and listen to parents coming with thanksgiving and petition to a heavenly Father who cares and provides every good thing the children experience, then they sweetly learn to be still during a sermon on Sunday morning, and to cry from their childish hearts to the Lord for help to worship and serve him, the living God.
